the law bans the usage of any sort of electronic, be it smartphone, smartwatches or a Tablet in school.

They say schools are left with the decision to choose whether to implement this rule for students above 15.
Students would have to turn off their phones or put them in their lockers till after school, this law was implemented amidst fears that students were becoming too dependent on their phones.
