Students To Be Banned From Using Cell Phones In Michigan

A new bill currently in the state legislature says they should be banned, and it’s getting mixed reactions from parents and students.

Some say the devices are a dangerous distraction, while others claim they are essential for security.

Teachers say students are bringing out their phones more and more in the classroom, making it harder for kids to learn.

Chanel Pitts, who has a sixth-grade daughter, is not for the bill for several reasons, one of them, school safety.

Pitts said it’s vital that her daughter be able to communicate with her at all times, so not having a cell phone isn’t an option.

Pretti Venkataraman, a child and adolescent psychiatrist, said too much screen time can lead to social anxiety and other mental health concerns. The bill is sponsored by Republican Rep. Gary Eisen.

He said the phones cause more problems, and he drafted it after talking with educators who said kids are distracted and using the device to bully one another.
