बन्द तन्त्र ले काम गर्ला? Mobile Phone, Junk Food, Mini Skirt and Motorbike Banned in Nepali Schools

Madhav Prasad Tiwari at Upatyaka.com discusses growing influence of social media in Nepal following the decision by the Education Ministry to ban mobile phones in classrooms because the students were too distracted by sites like Facebook.

“शिक्षकहरू विद्यालयमा बसेरै फेसबुक खोलेर त्यही बिद्यालयमा अध्ययनरत विद्यार्थीहरूसँग त्यो पनि विद्यालय समयमा नै च्याट गरेर बसिरहेका हुन्छन् । पढाउने र पढ्ने समयमा शिक्षक र बिद्यार्थीबीच यसरी च्याट हुनु राम्रो कुरा हैन । विद्यालयमा त शिक्षक र विद्यार्थीहरू दुबै मिलेर राम्रो र सौहर्द शैक्षिक वातावरणको सृजना गर्नु आवश्यक हुन्छ ।

तर, हाम्रो देशका धेरै विद्यालयका शिक्षक विद्यार्थीहरू विद्यालय समयमा नै च्याट गरेर बस्छन र आफ्नो जिम्मेवारीप्रति गैरजिम्मेवार ढंगले प्रस्तुत भइरहेका छन् । यस्तो प्रवृतिमा लिप्त भएका शिक्षक र विद्यार्थीहरूको लागि शिक्षा विभागले केही दिन अघिदेखि घोषणा गरेको मोबाइल लोडसेडिङले केही हदसम्म सुधार्नेमा आशा गर्नसकिन्छ । यद्यपी, बिद्यालय भित्र मोबाइप्रयोग गर्ने शिक्षक र विद्यार्थीलाई कसले ? कसरी ? के ? कहाँ ? र कहिले ? कार्बाही गर्छ भन्ने कुरा आुत्तरित छ । ती अनुत्तरित प्रश्नहरूको उत्तर खोजेर यसतर्फ छिट्टै निकास दिन सके निर्णय कार्यान्वयनमा केही सहजता हुने पक्का थियो । तथापी, विद्यालयहरूले उक्त निर्णयको कार्यान्वयन गर्ने जिम्मेवारीलाई वहन गर्न बिर्सन हुन्न । बरु, त्यसको लागि विद्यालय, व्यवस्थापन र विद्याथीहरूबीचको त्रिपक्षीय एउटा संयन्त्र निमार्ण गरी अनुगमको काम गरे कार्यान्वयमा अmझ सरल होला ।”

Schools in Pokhara are taking the ban approach further by prohibiting motorbikes and miniskirts too. BBC reports

“Guardians Association of Nepal member Hemraj Baral said the aim behind the motorcycle ban was to prevent more students from being killed or injured in an increasing number of traffic accidents.

Pokhara has a reputation as being one of the most beautiful towns in Nepal.

The Pokhara authorities say they also want to raise “moral standards” in this picturesque tourist city by disallowing fashion-conscious girls from wearing miniskirts that are too revealing.”

Junk food too is facing the axe, Education Ministry directive bans instant noodles and other snacks from schools.

“The Department of Education (DoE) has banned the use of cell phones in schools and also made it mandatory for parents to send only homemade launch for their children.

As per the new decision junk foods such as readymade noodles and snacks are not allowed into the school for health reason, according to officials.”

Will this banning spree work?
