Barbados students allowed phones in school

| October 20, 2015

But first they and their parents will have to accept and sign a comprehensive new code of conduct prepared by the Ministry of Education. And even before that, it appears both the ministry and parents will have to overcome strong objections from the teachers’ unions, particularly the Barbados Secondary Teachers’ Union.
