Hey guys! I'm doing a report on why schools should allow kids to chew gum in class. For my lang. arts. essay, I have to write a letter to the principle on something we agree or disagree with that the school has. 9If that even makes sense the way I wrote it). I need your opinion on if you think we should be able to chew gum in school. Please reply to the poll and if you want, you can leave me a reason for your answer. Thanks! Here is some stuff I found on why gum could help kids and why it is bad:

Good:
it helps you remember things
increases focus, alertness, and concentration
releaves stress
freshens breath
prevents tooth decay
kids won't be afraid to throw out their gum, so it wouldn't be put under the tables.


Bad:
bubbles can distract people
you may focus on the gum and not your schoolwork

its good at times and sometimes its not good
because it can cause a distraction when kids pop gum and blow bubbles
but yes because chewing gum helps some kids think

Well, my teacher says no to gum because it distracts you and you can drop it our of your mouth etc.
However, I do have a teacher who lets me chew gum in class. I was reading this article one day and it said when gum first came out, it didnt have any flavors and it was actually used to exercise your jaw. But that was when they thought of adding flavors Chewing gum in school Icon_razz

at my school im allowed since im in high school and some teachers don't care anymore Chewing gum in school Icon_razz i love chewing gum i don't think gum is that distractiing because there are people talking so no one can really hear you pop bubbles...

also i heard on the news that studies show that kids that chew gum during a test will more likely do better than a student who isnt chewing gum...


now i chew gum during every math test Chewing gum in school Icon_razz

I think no, because alot of kids at my high school put gum under the tables as a joke (I think it's gross to do this) usually to make fun of teachers. I think it's rude to do this, but that's what they do.

Plus, blowing gum distracts you from your work. I know it's good for you, but it's distracting, too. Try listening to complete silence while doing your work, then you hear a POP! and it's gum. Plus, it gets stuck in your hair and it's not fun taking it out Chewing gum in school Icon_razz lol I learned this from experience.

Well at my school we are allowed to chew gum as long as we don't stick it on desks, play with it, or blow bubbles, I think they should allow gum in other schools too it's not really a distraction LOL

It's not so good because many people like to litter the wrappers and spit out the gum on to the ground.

At my school, we are allowed to chew gum but recently, they said they didn't like it so much because, students werent putting it in the garbage and sticking their chewed gum on desks and stuff. Everytime i put my hand under a desk, i get gum on my hands. (Ewwww!) I still chew gum but, i make sure not to blow bubbles because whenever i do, the teachers tell me to spit it out. Chewing gum in school Icon_razz I find gum helps me think better, lol

The thing is, I think that if teachers allowed you to chew gum, mature people wouldn't be afraid to go spit it out when they are done with it because they wouldn't get in trouble. I think most mature people put it under desks because they know they can't spit it out into a trashcan.

Some teachers at my school allows gum in their class. I think if kids respected the rules and didn't blow bubbles, didn't snap their gum, and wasn't being distracting, and disposed of it correctly then I think it would be okay. Sadly though, not everyone follows the rules and then that's when teachers do not allow gum I think. Lol My favorite's is trident Chewing gum in school 143839
