Letting students bring phones to school is not okay

I REFER to the report “Phones in schools? It’s ok” (The Star, Nov 25; online at https://bit.ly/32BUnlP). The idea of allowing students to carry mobile phones in schools is akin to opening Pandora’s box. It may seem to contain a world of good inside, but when it is opened, it will unleash a host of troubles in our schools that are already struggling to be effective.

Can teachers even keep their students quiet in classrooms? I am not referring to beneficial teacher-student interaction but rather the mindless chatter that inevitably happens when the teacher is not in the classroom – and even when the teacher is present.
