The Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) says it stands committed to ensuring that the ban on mobile phones at the various Senior High Schools are still enforced.
Earlier reports have seen various headmasters and members of the Ghana Education Service (GES) call for a relook into the ban on mobile phones from classrooms as a former education minister also makes the case that the permit of such phones will improve the chance of expanding access to ICT.
“As for the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), we still stand by it that students should not be allowed to use mobile phones and we will enforce the GES regulation against the use of mobile phones by students,” the National Secretary of CHASS, Mr Samuel Gyebi Yeboah, told the Daily Graphic on Friday.
Meanwhile, government is yet to reveal its stance on the use of phones in the classrooms as concerns over the performance of students at the various SHS and JHS schools.
