It would be better for the students (as a generalization), and I shall quote the opening line from an abstract of a paper from years ago on Addiction and Cognition, ...

Just one more thing for teachers to keep track of and manage multiple times per day times 30+. Best case scenario will be five minutes at the front end of class and five minutes at the back end. That doesn't count the kid(s) who will **** around getting out their phone, trying to pass a burner off as the main and argue about how their Mama told them to not turn the phone in.

To be honest, I think that a better solution is some type of electronic blocking system, with exceptions for the school cafeteria at lunch and for teachers in the faculty lounge and other very select places.

Some of the teachers, especially the young ones, also have a problem with pulling out their cellphones during class.

That's very true, which is why I suggest a signal blocking system.

At my grandsons’ private school here in Sydney, the use of phones is completely banned during the day. If they bring a phone it is entirely their own responsibility and must remain in their bag at all times. If it is lost, their problem. Grandsons take an old phone on the days when they are walking home.
The state wide bans in public schools are being implemented by individual schools and it is too early to have feedback, but will be interesting.

Not just "young teachers". We had a group of Administrators that you never knew if they were taking to you or someone on their phone's Bluetooth. Not to mention the times that they'd stop a meeting and wander off because "I have to take this". That's also not counting the times they'd be doing an observation and talking on their phone during it.

Not remotely legal for a school or anyone else other than law enforcement to block cell signals.

Well, you're right. So we'll have to get really tough with our rules in other ways.
