On Cypriots want to ban the use of mobile phones in schools

The Minister of Education of Cyprus Athena Michaelidou informed that the country's government plans to ban the use of mobile phones in schools because they distract students too much and lead to anti-social behavior.

According to her, the Cypriot authorities intend to introduce bans on gadgets after discussing this issue with the parliament.

As Mihaelidu noted, Cyprus will follow several European states in introducing a ban based on the recommendations of UNESCO.

“It is obvious that the use of mobile phones distracts students from lessons, but first of all this (introduction of the ban on the use of mobile devices – ed.) is connected with the growth of antisocial behavior”, – she explained.

The minister noted that students will not be prohibited from bringing phones to school, but they will not be able to turn them on.
