SCHOOL BANS PARENTS FROM USING PHONES IN PLAYGROUND TO STOP THEM IGNORING THEIR CHILDREN
TiC has many articles recently on different schools and countries education authorities trying to deal with mobile phone usage in schools.
Here is a school that has banned mobile phone use by parents as the school believes that parents are neglecting their children by speaking on their phones when they collect them from the school.
Wendy Cathie, head of St Peter’s CE Primary School in Leigh, near Wigan, has made the playground a mobile-free zone to encourage parents to listen to their child at the end of the day.
What do you think? Is this a good idea?
