Better Late Than Never For Smoking Bans

Bans on smoking by teachers in public schools are becoming more widespread. The latest decision has been made by Sendai City, which will bar anyone from lighting up at 195 education institutions, ranging from kindergartens to high schools, from next April. "All kinds of smoke will be eliminated from the (school) compounds," Mayor Hajimu Fujii said. "Even the separation of smoking and nonsmoking areas will not be allowed." A similar smoking ban was introduced throughout Wakayama Prefecture in April of this year. Utsunomiya City is also planning to introduce a ban in the next academic year.
