gum should be allowed in school because you might be hungry and need something to chew on.

First, i thank my opponent for this debate.

I shall begin with my counterarguments.(cuz i dont have much to say lately anyway :P)

"gum should be allowed in school because you might be hungry and need something to chew on."

This is easily replaced by other foods like chocolate and other foods that u can get in the canteen.
Gum doesnt satisfy hunger anyway and ingesting gums are bad for your health.

My arguments:
1. The gums doesnt get properply disposed.
Gums get literally placed in places that shouldnt be there.
Examples: Under desks, bathroom walls, people hairs, etc.
Banning gum from school will prevent these litters.

2. Its rude.
While in middle of a class, where silence is appropriate, if you were to chew gum, its very rude.
The constant sound of you biting on it distracts others. Yes, it may help you, but its no excuse if it distracts others.

I await my opponent's response.
