Governor Newsom supports efforts to get smartphones out of schools

SACRAMENTO  – Governor Gavin Newsom today issued the following statement, supporting efforts to restrict smartphone use in California schools.

As the Surgeon General affirmed, social media is harming the mental health of our youth. Building on legislation I signed in 2019, I look forward to working with the Legislature to restrict the use of smartphones during the school day. When children and teens are in school, they should be focused on their studies — not their screens.
