Canada province to ban cell phonesOntario's education Minister Lisa Thompson announced the new policy on Tuesday, after a year of consultations.

The ban would apply during LL instructional time, but their would be exceptions for teachers who want to use them as part of a lesson plan, students with special needs and medical reasons.

Many districts have already instituted bans, but this edict would apply to all public schools across the province.

"Ontario's students need to be able to focus on their learning," Ms Thompson wrote.

"By banning cell phone use that distracts from learning, we are helping students to focus on acquiring the foundational skills they need like reading, writing and math. We will be making a formal announcement in the near future."
