After more than a year and a half of remote study, last Sunday, millions of students returned to attending classes in the Kingdom’s schools, in light of strict precautionary measures to confront the Corona pandemic.
Banning the use of mobile phones in Saudi schools
This comes, while the Saudi Ministry of Education decided, on Tuesday, to ban the use of mobile phones “permanently” inside schools, and to prevent filming any educational facility.
And the official Saudi Press Agency reported, “The Ministry of Education issued a decision to permanently ban the use of mobile phones inside the school.”
The ministry explained that “the school administration has the exception to prevent the bringing of the mobile phone for necessity according to its discretion, and this includes the case of students whose health conditions require bringing the mobile to the school, provided that it is kept with the administration.”
