New York City students and teachers were newly banned from using ChatGPT, and they did not issue a ban, but in the first place took measures to block access to ChatGPT from terminals and networks in the education sector.

According to the New York City Department of Education, this was due to 'negative effects on student learning and concerns about the safety and accuracy of the content,' spokeswoman Jenna Lyle said, 'ChatGPT responded to questions. They may provide quick and concise answers, but they fail to build critical thinking and problem-solving skills essential for academic and lifelong success.'

According to Chalkbeat, which handles educational information in New York City, it is unknown whether similar measures are being taken in other municipalities. In addition, it was only access from the terminal / network of the education department that was blocked, so it seems that there is no problem accessing ChatGPT from home, for example.
