Banning Phones In Schools: Good Or Bad Idea?

It seems pretty straight forward, ban mobile phones in schools so kids can focus on learning and teachers can focus on teaching - but is it that simple?

We speak to a student, a teacher and a parent to see if they think taking away the distraction will make a difference to Aussie kids education.


Host/Producer: Claire Murphy

Executive Producer: Elle Beattie
