Should students be allowed to curse in school?

  • Yes they Should

    Words are sounds. You shouldn't get in trouble for making a sound. I hate it when parents and teachers yell at you for saying something. I never understood why some words were considered "bad" in the first place. If it's the meaning behind the word, then why is it sociably acceptable to say the word "hate" but it's wrong to use what we call profanity.

  • Of course the should!

    Swearing helps your emotions come through, especially if you're really passionate about what you're saying. It doesn't matter- people will be exposed to swearing whether or not the school allows it. People do it outside of class- what's the difference? I understand that swearing might be offensive to some people- but that's their personal choice not one that should be imposed on everyone! In the same way, some people might be offended by cross necklaces or hijabs- it's someone's religion and it means something to them, of course they should be allowed to wear it.

  • Yes yes they should

    It may not be nice but if they learn how to use it at the right time it might not be to bad .Like if I described a bully as a sonovabitch that would let the teacher know he was a pain in the ass.Plus they are not physical fights

  • They do it, we do it

    Im writing thus post because i got in trouble for swearing. The teacher that told me to stop swearing used swear words himself in the office when kids arent around. As long as its not to insult or hurt someone, we should be able swear in school. Teachers have no control over any parts of our body so why not use it to its full extent.

  • It's a right

    Swearing is a right and students should be allowed to swear. Anything can be offesive to someone as of course swearing is offensive to some people if negative opinions which can be offensive are allowed to be expressed then swearing should be allowed.

    I feel it's dumb not to allow it personally.

  • We live in an equal society

    If a student swears during a lunchtime break they shouldn't get in trouble due to the fact that no one is learning however in class time students should be aware of their surroundings. Overall, i think it's a bunch of bullshit, get over your self's, there just fucking words, welcome to modern society, if you have a problem with that will then go fuck your self's. We are all known as equals, so we should have the same rights of adults, i mean i believe in God, i still swear because there just fucking words.

  • Fuck your feelings

    You all need to stop being so triggered and offended so easily 2017 is the year for all the fucking pussys with a million genders its words and yeah im using them in this on purpose so you guys need to seriously just stop being so offended grow up .

  • They're just words

    Why should students be punished for using words? They may be considered offensive, but what makes them offensive is context. Using the f word when you drop something is different than calling someone the b word. Plus, it has been shown that people who cuss generally have more expansive vocabularies.

  • Most teachers do it it to like the gym teachers.

    Some teachers do it @woodlandmiddleschool. Teachers need to respect students if there is a freedom of speech in the constitution then it should count for all ages. If teachers do it to then students should be able to do it to. So use the freedom of speech law for everybody.

  • No, they shouldn't.

    Cursing, especially in SCHOOL, is highly disrespectful and enitrely unneeded. When a teacher is giving a lesson, students shouldn't just be able to curse all around and in the hallways and such. This is also setting a horrible example for smaller or younger students around them, and we don't little children swearing, now do we?

  • Nopedy nopety no

    Well i believe in God so yer i'd have to say no on that one, it's disrespectful to God and can be to other people as well. Even if it's a habit, it shouldn't be allowed at schools. The less cursing in the world, is less of that particular sin, so yer its always good to have a clean mouth :)

  • No, because there are many hidden consequences for it.

    No, because, as many people don't know, cursing can increase a persons anger and temper. Imagine all the students cursing, and day by day, they become angrier and more uncontrollable.
    Also, when a person curses, it becomes a habit for them, which causes them to curse at inappropriate times such as in front of a principal, teacher, parent, when they are in trouble, etc. In these situations, cursing would definitely be considered as rude and disrespectful.

    I also found this from a website I found explaining the different cons of swearing:
    Swearing Imposes a Personal Penalty
    It gives a bad impression
    It makes you unpleasant to be with
    It endangers your relationships
    It's a tool for whiners and complainers
    It reduces respect people have for you
    It shows you don't have control
    It's a sign of a bad attitude
    It discloses a lack of character
    It's immature
    It reflects ignorance
    It sets a bad example

    Swearing is Bad for Society
    It contributes to the decline of civility
    It offends more people than you think
    It makes others uncomfortable
    It is disrespectful of others
    It turns discussions into arguments
    It can be a sign of hostility
    It can lead to violence

    Swearing corrupts the English language
    It's abrasive, lazy language
    It doesn't communicate clearly
    It neglects more meaningful words
    It lacks imagination
    It has lost its effectiveness

    Hope this helped you understand why students shouldn't be allowed to swear in school. :)

  • No need for it

    There is NO reason for students to have to swear in school, or anywhere, it is pointless in my opinion, and is an excuse to make fun of people, make others affended, or just do it for the "rush" which i feel does not exist. It is just sad to think there are any reasons why bad words are needed.

  • No, no, no

    Although I myself do curse all the time, i do realize that becaues of school, you learn when and where certain language is acceptable. The school settting, which later turns into the work setting, is not. Kids need to learn that they cannot curse just anywhere, because getting into the habit of not caring and cursing anywhere will later on mess up their chance for a job. What if they accidently curse in an inteview????

  • It's a matter of respect.

    I personally feel that students should not be able to swear in school out of respect for the teachers and the other students. As a student myself, I know how hard it is for the teachers to put up with idiots in classes, and if they swear at you, you are belittling all of their efforts. They don't swear at the students, so we shouldn't swear at them.

  • It's so offensive

    I get highly offended when I hear people swear. I was just at the shops and felt awful and uncomfortable being around people swearing. Kids need to learn restraint and when it's not appropriate to use these words, if they can just swear where ever they want they will never learn this.

  • No, no student should be a loud curse.

    Every student should be a quite blessing. Diligent students who respect their teachers and study their coursework tend to do well. Why would you want a student to be a curse? What sort of sick, perverted logic justifies the desire for students to be a curse upon the school system?

  • What does this have on the children's learning in environment

    This is going to make kids distracted when they hear some kids start cussing out at each other, and with the teacher. This would encourage the use of language that should only be used out and about , plus this would greatly affect their grades and evidently become street trash. LOL xD this is just for fun, but kids can curse but not in school.

  • What attitude does that encourage?

    Students turn into adults. Children are adults while developing. If they develop a foul mouth and a foul attitude while in school, with nobody there to pick them up on it, they'll go into the world with a pottymouth, and nobody likes that in a job interview. It's in their best interest in the long run.
