    I support the idea of banning smartphones in schools because I believe it can help create a more focused, engaging, and socially interactive learning environment. Smartphones often serve as a significant distraction, not only detracting from educational engagement but also from meaningful face-to-face interactions among students. These interactions are crucial for developing social skills and emotional intelligence. By removing smartphones from the school setting, we can reduce distractions, decrease instances of cyberbullying, and encourage students to engage more deeply with their peers, teachers, and the curriculum.
