Chad Smith started this petition to Sevier County School Board

We believe that we should be able to use our phones during the school day. A good example is during lunch. Mr. Loy said we should not use our phones to help our 'academics'. This may be true during class, but during lunch is different. We are told that we cannot do homework during lunch, so in lunch we should be able to use our phones. This does not affect our academics in any way. As a student we have talked to our peers and teachers. We believe that the rules that were put in place were over exaggerated for the circumstances. To be fair, yes we do believe that phones could get in the way of our academics. But to our point we believe that the phones could also help us with our research. Phones are a way for us to listen to music while in school on our Chromebooks most music services are blocked and they are unavailable for us. We bring this point for change. As students we believe that we have certain rights and these rights should not be infringed.  As the first amendment states, " Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press" This shows that we have the ability to have freedom of speech to fight for our rights. Even though we are minors, we have the same rights. We are citizens of the United States of America.
