"As researchers studying the economics of education, we conducted a study to find out what impact banning mobile phones has had on student test scores in subsequent years."

"We found that not only did student achievement improve, but also that low-achieving and at-risk students gained the most. We found the impact of banning phones for these students equivalent to an additional hour a week in school, or to increasing the school year by five days."
