Students may get the okay for phones


Share post:

STUDENTS at all levels, from nursery to secondary level, may soon be officially allowed to carry and use their smartphones in school.

But first they and their parents will have to accept and sign a comprehensive new code of conduct prepared by the Ministry of Education.

And even before that, it appears both the ministry and parents will have to overcome strong objections from the teachers’ unions, particularly the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union.

The code, titled Mobile Technologies Use Policy for Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools in Barbados was first circulated to stakeholders more than a month ago.

Please read the full story in today’s Sunday Sun, or in the eNATION edition.
