How many of you allow your high school students to chew gum in class? I have never allowed it, but I am considering dropping the rule so I don't have to deal with it any more. Also, I feel like I am one of the few teachers at my school that enforce a policy against gum chewing and I don't need that to make me appear like I am extra strict or unreasonable. I don't want to fight that battle. Is gum being put on furniture a real concern? Is it outweighed by the benefits of better concentration being claimed for gum chewing?
