Tajikistan bans mobile phones from schools
Wed Mar 11, 2009

DUSHANBE (Reuters) – The Central Asian state of Tajikistan on Tuesday banned mobile phones from all schools and universities in a bid to boost education.

“This measure has been taken in order to improve the quality of teaching at schools,” deputy Dodikhudo Saimutdinov said after a vote in parliament.

Offenders, including those who carry phones without using them, will be fined.

Although Tajikistan is considered Central Asia’s poorest nation, 3.2 million out of 7 million Tajiks use mobiles.

President Imomali Rakhmon has earlier introduced uniforms at schools and universities and barred students from going to schools in their own cars.
