School rules are important in society because...
They provide a set of morals for the up and coming generations and present guidelines so the school is more organized than chaotic. In the case that the rules are abused it's vice-versa or the other way around. Finally they prepare the students for what will be expected of them later in life.
Opposing viewpoints on rules.
Positive viewpoint: Tom Head, a civil liberties expert states rules are important because "they protect people from being harmed by others".
Negative viewpoint: Karen Hardison says that people without restrictions "develop in to the most independent and creatively intelligent".
The effect of rules today.
People now rely on them because they are seen as an essential part in creating a civilized society. They may also be largely to blame for the eventual increase in crimes because some people don't like being restricted by rules and feel it necessary to break them.
