According to CCTV News, the Russian State Duma passed an amendment to the “Education Law”.
The newly amended law stipulates that communication tools including smartphones should be banned in primary and secondary schools.
This law will officially take effect on September 1, 2024, so both parents and their children have enough of time to learn and comply.
According to current regulations, Russian primary and secondary schools only allow the use of mobile phones for teaching purposes and in emergencies.
The bill does not specify where students should keep their phones, and schools will discuss these issues in detail with parents.
In addition, the amendment to the Education Law also stipulates that labour courses will be returned to schools as a compulsory subject.
