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.
