Let students use mobile gadgets

In any school in Bhutan, a student caught with a mobile gadget faces serious consequences, including the following. The gadget is seized for the entire academic year, parents are summoned and admonished, or a monetary fine is imposed. The school authorities treat the student as if he or she has committed a crime. This is generally considered normal and acceptable.
