Susil orders CDM phones for all schools

Following the ban on the use of mobile phones by students during school hours, the Minister of Education Susil Premjayanth has directed authorities to provide schools without telephone facilities with CDM phones.

This would enable students to contact their parents in case of emergencies and principals have been directed that students be allowed the use of school phones in emergencies.

This was revealed to The Island by former Deputy Director of Education, Bingiriya Region, W. M. Balasooriya. He said that at present 90 per cent of schools countrywide have telephone facilities.
