Lift the ban on Fidget Spinners

This petition had 36 supporters

Holman's ban on the fidget spinners is one of the many absurd bans our middle school has created in my history at this school.The Administration may not see it but the students have become fed up, the ban on the "fidget spinners" pushed us over the edge. These fidget spinners and cubes were originally created for those with ADHD to channel their energy into. Granted, they is a small number of people without ADHD that own these spinners, but its a small fraction of those who actually have it. What makes the whole situation just that more angering for the student body is that the administration is taking away that outlet so many of us use to channel our energy. Would our administration rather us distract the entire class because our energy built up to much? I'm almost positive that 99% of teachers would say no. Students are tired of being held to standards that to the everyday student, feel like that of someone in a federal prison. No body is perfect, but its almost as if our school is trying to impose that they're forcing us to be. Fads will come and go, and its all a part of our childhood, please don't take that away from us.
