Should students be allowed (pro) or disallowed (con) to listen to music of their choice during school hours? This would consist of elementary through high school public schools.

  • i am kind of in the middle with this one. it is okay for students to listen to calm music, which i believe is not distracting, but not music that is too violent or fast, because i believe that that is distracting

  • Yes. Music calms them down and makes them less talkative. Not to mention it can improve their mood too. They can take their headphones out when the teacher needs to speak.

  • YES! Not everybody is listening to Lil' Uzi Vert trying to get high or explain how many women he has.

It depends. Do you mean during independent work/study time, or just anytime?

I mean during the time that the teacher is not a teacher, so I guess you classify that as work/study time.

The obvious answer is yes, and I disagree that it should be calming music as studies have shown listening to metal and hard rock is better for a student than listening to classical as it helps reduce stress.
