Gum is not allowed at my school and you will get in huge trouble if you are caught chewing it. I think this is a mistake.
When I am at home and I am working on my homework I often chew gum. Personally, chewing gum helps me. It gives my subconscious something to do while I focus on my work.
Gum should be allowed at school because it has been proven to help kids focus and become better students.
Chewing gum helps your memory improve and it also helps you focus while youre studying. Chewing gum helps to relieve stress and relax.
Three of the biggest reasons gum is not allowed at school are because teachers think its rude, distracting and messy.
I disagree with their opinions. Many people also believe gum is horrible for your teeth.
Gum has been scientifically proven to help kids focus better and to improve their memory. Dr. Kenneth Allen, a professor at NYUs College of Dentistry, has done research and proved that chewing gum can help you in school.
The United States is not the only country studying the effects of gum chewing. Psychologists in the United Kingdom have also proven that chewing gum helps your memory and studying. This is due to the fact that chewing gum helps to release insulin into the bloodstream which affects how well your memory works.
Gum might be helpful for people with ADD or ADHD. The simple chewing motion can help you relax when taking a test in school.
In fact, according to a Wrigley gum study, 65 percent of athletes chew gum to help relieve stress before or during a game.
Most teachers say that gum is too messy and will end up underneath the desk, but I disagree. Students often put gum underneath a desk instead of being caught throwing it away.
If gum were allowed people might throw it away rather than being sneaky. Some students may put it under the desk or on the floor just to be rebellious, but if they had the privilege to chew gum at school they might be more respectful
