Students should be able to eat during class since 1, it’s harmless and it’s helping students health. 2, it’s not distracting. 3, most students don’t bring a lunch to school so they bring snacks instead. 4, it is a human right to be able to eat (9th amendment). So if schools want to reject the basic human rights then it’s on them. It’s not right for them to deny us something we need to survive. They don’t know students home lives so they shouldn’t deny us BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS the 9th amendment states all common knowledge rights to be protected. The schools have denied us that right. Sure, they let us eat during lunch, but they have NO right to deny us a right. Just like not being able to have hoodies on in class, they shouldn’t have control over what shouldn’t be a problem, that is until they make it a problem. Every student has a right to eat, if the schools take that away from us, and give a referral or suspension over a basic human right, it’s not ok nor right. Students have a free will to express themselves and schools not allowing students to eat is not ok. This petition insures that students would be able to eat, and have that right to their bodies and health, during class or whenever they need it. Schools don’t know if students have a condition or not, so this would insure our human right as a citizen.
