A majority of members of the teachers’ union AOB support a government-imposed ban on cell phones in class, according to a survey of some 8,400 teachers.

Only 54% and 57% of primary and vocational school teachers support the ban, while 73% of secondary school teachers want mobile phones to go away.

“This is a very clear result,” said Jelmer Evers, secondary education officer at AOb. “Our members say that mobile phones are having a negative impact on students’ ability to concentrate.

About 21% of teachers who voted against the ban said they wanted schools to make their own arrangements for phone calls during class, and 6% said they wanted to decide the issue themselves.

A nationwide ban would need to leave room for teachers’ discretion, Evers said. Allow students to bring them in, but put them in lockers. It means that teachers don’t want them in the classroom.
