Do you think gum should be allowed in schools?

Many people or teachers think gum is just another thing that students have that make a mess. Even though that make be right gum can also be useful in other things, So to me i think gum should be allowed in schools and I'm going to explain a little bit about why it should be allowed

Sticky situations!!

I believe that gum should be allowed in schools because it keeps students awake and energized and we all know teachers hate students falling asleep. Study's state that gum chewing helps students stay alert and ready to learn. The movement of the jaw helps students stay awake. It raises students metabolism by 20 percent. Gum chewing may get messy but it also has it's benefits.
