Video games should not be allowed in school. They do not benefit the students. According to www.parentingscience.com, researchers tracked two groups of boys: one group played games, and the other did not play games. The results: the boys who played vvideo games not only spent less time doing homework, but they also did worse on the standarized tests. According to another survey by Cummings and Vandewater, American adolescents aged 10 to 19 spent 30% less time reading and 34% less time doing homework. Kids who play games tend to also develop attention problems, and their livese become dominated by video games.
Good point. I did fail to mention what type of video games are bad for students. I am referring to games such as Mine craft. Recently, a private middle school has approved a lunch time club that allows students to play Mine craft for 30 minutes. This is the kind of games that I am talking about.
But you said in round 1 that video games take away their time from finishing their homework. Yet, you stated in round 2 that a school provided only 30 minutes for children to play minecraft I suppose. So, they are not taking away they homework time yet, giving them the time they need to play video games in school so they will have no excuse to play video games at home instead of doing their homework.
Many children play video games at home. According to the chicagonow.com, the average child aged 8-12 plays about 13 hours of video games a week. That is almost two hours a day. To have children play games at schools is too much for one child. Playing violent games can have serious on children and adults as well.
well I suppose that's the parents fault, who allows their children to freely play video games and forget about their studies. So schools can give a specific time to play video games at school, and when they get home the parents will make sure to finish their home works and studies then do whatever they want.
