The Liberal Party leader Jan Björklund and others from his party recently suggested making the use of mobile phones in primary and secondary school classrooms illegal. The argument for a new law was made on the Op-Ed pages of Swedish daily, Dagens Nyheter. They feel Sweden should follow the example of France, where such a ban has been introduced. The authors of the article are referring to, among other things, a British study that examined how mobile-free classrooms affect school results in England: "It turned out the students in the mobile-free lessons improved the knowledge outcomes, and it was the low-performing students that improved their results the most."

Furthermore, the Liberal Party members believe the principals at each school should have the right to decide whether to prohibit mobile phones even during breaks. It is important, in particular, that small children are outside playing during breaks instead of focusing on their mobiles, the Op-Ed states.
