Pakistan bans use of mobile phones by teachers
Rawalpindi, commonly known as Pindi, is a rapidly growing city in the Pothohar region of northern Punjab, Pakistan. The education board there has banned teachers from using smartphones during school hours.
“Yesterday, our headteacher told us that we are not allowed to use mobile phones in the school. She collected the mobile sets from us in the morning and returned them later in the day,” a teacher from the Government Girls High School Dhoke Hassu, said.
When Reuters contacted the district officer for education in the sleepy town, he responded in affirmative, claiming that mobile phones interfere with the act of learning on the students’ side.
“We have taken the decision as there were reports that teachers were wasting time on mobile phones during school hours. The decision has been taken in the best interest of students. The violators of the ban can face suspension,” Zahoorul Haq narrated.
“To ensure that the ban is implemented, we were left with no other option but to direct the head teachers to collect mobile sets from the teachers at the assembly time.”
Haq also explained that in case of emergencies, teachers are free to collect their handsets from the headteachers.
So, over to you readers. What’s your take on this directive — good or trashy?
