Should gum be allowed in school

It has been decided in many schools that there shall be no students that chew gum, but some people disagree. Children Should be allowed to chew gum in school.

The argument

Gum can benefit children in many ways. According to the article gum "Helps students stay alert and ready to learn." When people chew gum you have to move your jaw up and down, when you move your jaw up and down you are creating a distraction for falling asleep.

The downside to chewing gum is that you can find it everywhere. If you go to Walmart you can see it everywhere on the the sidewalk. In schools you can find it under the desks, on the walls and on the floor.
