Banning of mobile phones in school improves students’ academic performance

Most schools and universities and even offices ban the use of mobile phones or tablets within the premises for obvious reasons. If adults can't keep their hands and eyes off their devices at night and actually anywhere, young kids and teenagers surely can't part with their phones as well.
