The Ministry of Education took to their Facebook page yesterday to launch a survey on allowing students to use their mobile phones at school.
The survey by MOE is open from 23 November to 7 December and aims to gain insight on public opinion regarding the matter. The google docs form created takes into account the opinions of teachers, students, parents and the general public.
From there, the ministry will use their findings to decide whether or not students should be allowed to bring their phones.
Malaysian government schools have always banned primary and secondary school students from bringing and using their mobile phones at school.
But times have changed with online learning being a big part of education these days.
Interestingly, the comment section of the Facebook post sees many adults voicing out their concerns on the suggestion. Some said that the new rule should be applied to boarding school students only. While many others said the new rule would make it safer for students but phone usage needs to be supervised by teachers.
What do you think? Your opinion matters so take the quick and simple survey now!
