The World is your School
Smoking In School
Holly G., Leicester, MA
I'm a concerned student from Leicester High and I'm writing on the subject of smoking on school grounds. I see nothing wrong with this. Students smoke anyway, and teachers can't control who smokes in school because there are just too many to catch in the process. I think about half of the students smoke in school. The other half is being affected by the secondhand smoke. But I think the students who do smoke should be able to smoke outside at break during lunch. That way it wouldn't affect those who don't smoke. If they don't give us this opportunity then the bathrooms and the halls will become full of more smoke and more students will be affected by this.
In my opinion I think something should be done. n
