Bill to Ban Cell Phone and other Electronic Devices in Classrooms Moves Forward

A new bill has been introduced to the Tennessee General Assembly that would ban electronic devices in Tennessee classrooms.

The bill, HB 2758/SB 2809, would prohibit students from displaying, using, or accessing an electronic device, like a cell phone, during instructional time.

The bill was passed in two considerations in the Senate and has been recommended for passing by the K-12 Subcommittee to the Education Administration.
