New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Laxson announced Friday local time that mobile phones will be banned in all primary and secondary schools in the country, reported on December 1, according to Xinhua News Agency.

Tuyuan Pexels Laxson said he would promote the ban of mobile phones in primary and secondary schools across the country within 100 days of taking office on November 27, so as to eliminate the phenomenon of mobile phones interfering with classroom order and allow students to concentrate on class. "We want children to concentrate on their studies and teachers to concentrate on teaching."

Laxson and the country's new education minister, Erica Stanford, visited a school in Oakland. Laxson also said, "you can see that some good schools have made such a decision for a long time and have achieved good educational results."

Researchers at Education Hub, a local charity, warned in 2022 that more than 1/3 of the country's 15-year-olds could not read and write. The agency has advised the government that some measures must be taken to solve these problems.

According to, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) issued a report in July this year calling on schools around the world to impose campus bans on students from using smartphones. The report says the ban can improve classroom chaos, improve students' learning, and help protect children from cyber bullying.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said at the time that there was evidence that excessive use of mobile devices was associated with declining educational performance and that high levels of screen time had a negative impact on children's emotional stability.

"not all new things are progressive, and we should not fully accept digital technology just because digital technology can bring about some changes," the report concluded.
