I've had some teachers allow their students to chew gum and others who haven't. In my opinion, kids SHOULD be allowed to chew gum in class. As someone who bites their nails, gum is something that helps me to quit. However, this is only successful over the summer break because as soon as I'm back at school, my teachers tell me to spit it out resulting in me biting my nails again. Another advantage to having gum is that gum can help with memory. For example, if you chew peppermint gum while studying, and the. chew it while you're taking your test, it usually helps you remember what you studied. At some high schools, during tests they allow you to chew gum, but do you think that kids of all ages should be allowed to chew gum during tests throughout the year? I know that gum does end up on the bottom of desks but you can always have classes clean up every week or even hire students and/or volunteers. What do you think, should gum be allowed in all classes?

Not at any camp that I have been to. It is distracting and it would get all over the carpet and the desks a whole lot more and the computers would be stuffed with it. As it is they can't even throw it away at lunch much less throw it away during class. I have never seen it help a student learn so I have to go with no it should not be.0
