Starting in 2020 all Schools in Victoria will have a complete phone ban which a lot of students and teachers disagree with. Students and Teachers did not get a choice in this decision which will be affecting all of us. We have been grown up to be shown how to use our technology to advance our studies and knowledge of the world.

This will affect our classes because our timetables are stored on compass and since compass was brought out it has made paper timetables obsolete which has decreased deforestation. Majority of schools actually use phones for research in class which helps students to achieve better grades and helps to further knowledge in subjects that could lead to university. 

one of the reasons they are banning them is because of cyber-bullying but majority of cyber-bullying happens after school or on weekends when the bully cannot be caught for doing what they are doing plus they have more spare time time when they aren't school. No matter what people will still get bullied in person, why don't we focus on stopping the bullying at the root of our problem... the playground?         we should put resources into training our teachers to have better focus on mental health and bullying.

There has been a lot of debate about this topic recently but it will most likely affect public school kids that can't afford laptops and use their phones for all their school needs.
