DEAR Ban (Drop Everything and Read)

This petition had 71 supporters

Every Wednesday for team time, we are mandated to stay inside to read our books. Team time is one of the only times of the day besides lunch that students get to connect with their friends and enjoy free time. We can do read at home or in class everyday if the teacher allows it. Students should be given free time so they can get a break from learning to relax their minds. 

Everyday for team time, at least one teacher stays inside for optional study hall. If someone was behind on their reading and wanted to catch up on his/her reading in school, they can go to the open class. Many kids, including myself, generally don't get behind on reading and have to stay in on Wednesday for no reason. I believe if we have a teacher still stay in everyday, there is no need to make every student in the entire 8th grade stay in. Also, some teachers enjoy going outside to take a break from teaching us students, but if we are forced to stay inside, so are they.
