Grades improve when cell phones banned in schools, but expert says distraction not the problem

New research about students and technology is getting the attention of schools across the U.S.

Texting, tweeting and advancing to the next level of Candy Crush–all while the teacher is talking– is a recipe for slumping test scores, according to a new study from The London School Of Economics.

Researchers sampled 130,000 British students and saw a 6 percent increase in test scores when cell phones are banned. Underachievers saw an even bigger spike with grades improving by 14 percent.

    My grades where really low, had a GPA of 1.28 was almost asked to leave the college if fail the next exam coming , I was really scared at that point but then I came across sam. I spoke with his agent and I was told EROS would get my grades changed from F to A or my exam questions and answer. Never believed him at first because I felt it wasn’t possible but on a second thought I had no choice but to give a trial. I paid for his tools and in few hours he sent me the questions and answers of my courses. One the day of my exams the questions where exactly the same what they sent to me. I was so happy and pleased By the help of CYBERFINGERSHACKS🎡NET did the impossible never believed my college website could be hacked.

    They should ban smartphones for students but allow them to have those basic/feature phones that allow only calling and texting. With that, little to no social media and online distraction while still keeping communication line with parents or guardians open as well as for safety.
