Kentucky House panel advances bill to forbid student cellphone use during class

Kentucky lawmakers advanced a bill Tuesday aimed at ending cellphone distractions in classrooms.

The measure would require local school boards across the Bluegrass State to adopt a policy that, at a minimum, forbids students from using cellphones during instructional time.

“We can’t teach kids that are distracted,” said Republican Rep. Josh Bray, the bill’s lead sponsor.
