Guyana moves to ban cellular phones from public schools

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Guyanas Minister of Education, Shaik Baksh has announced a plan of action that includes a ban on cellular phones, increased sporting activity and the placement of school welfare officers. The new initiatives have won approval from the Guyana Teachers Union, which represents over 7,000 teachers who have been subjected to abuse by irate parents and other disruptive elements. The upsurge of violent attacks both on teachers and students has become a concern to the Ministry. GTUs President, Colwyn King said that, while a ban on the use of cellular phones might spark controversy, it is a well-known fact that the devices are known to be equally as distractive as they are helpful. He added that phones that are fitted with Bluetooth technology and internet access, which can allow the transfer of pictures, and foster the spread of pornography. The plan has been met with great opposition from some sections of the Guyanese society.

I dont think cell phones should be banned from public school, but however; the kids should understand that cell phones shouldn't be going off while the techers are teaching. cell phone should be use during break times, before and after school. PLEASE DONT BAN THE CELL PHONES
