How Has a Ban on Smartphones in Schools Affected You?

Gov. Gavin Newsom of California on Tuesday became the latest state leader to back a ban on smartphones in schools, joining a growing, bipartisan call to limit them in the classroom.

Similar restrictions are already in place statewide in places like Florida and Indiana. Elsewhere, individual school districts or schools have instituted policies on their own. And more could follow: Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York has said she plans to pursue a similar ban next year.

We want a better understanding of what this policy means for students, parents and teachers. How has the ban been implemented in the classroom, and what does enforcement look like? Has it changed things in the classroom?

We’re especially interested in hearing from people in areas where such a ban is already in place.
