I believe that game sites should not be banned in school for many reasons, one of them being that if kids get work done early they have something to do. It can also be a great way to encourage kids to do there work.

I accept this challenge. I first say since this is a 1000 character limit-- i'll attempt to keep it short.

I'll take the liberty to define the terms in the comment section

Kids may have something to do, but if there are game sites they would probably finish the homework terribly, because they would be wanting to play the games really badly. Second school is for learning-- not for playing. When your done with work, there are other things even more productive you can do. There is reading, catching up on other homework, or writing essay for the fun of it.

It can also be a fantastic way to encourage kids to finish their work quickly and sloppy, so they can play their games.

My school blocking game sites is the best thing they could have done. I never thought I would see so many people booting Linux off a thumb drive.
