A new study, covering more than 130,000 students across England, looks at how cellphone policies have changed since 2001.
A new study by the London School of Economics found that a cellphone ban in schools results in a clear improvement in overall test scores.
The study found that students saw a 6.41 percent improvement in test scores and performance at schools that have introduced a cellphone ban.
Low-achieving students saw improved outcomes of up to 14.23 percent as a result of a cellphone ban, with high-achieving students have little to no impact from the ban.
