Smartphone ban in schools: the Ministry responded to the newsletter
Vice-Minister of Education and Science Sholpan Karimova commented on the newsletter in social networks that the use of smartphones will be banned in schools in Kazakhstan.
"I want to note that the social network is spreading information that phones will be banned in schools. This is not true. Today, this norm is maintained, as it was before, " Sholpan Karinova said at a CCS briefing.
The Vice-minister noted that schools can independently make a decision on the introduction of restrictions on the use of smartphones within the walls of an educational institution.
She stressed that the issue of restricting the use of smartphones has been discussed for more than one day, and not only in Kazakhstan, but also throughout the CIS.
