Third, tell us how that is going to benefit the people.

The rule that I would change is that if you drive 10km or more below the speed limt you get to go back to diving school the first time you get warned and then the second time you would have to back to drivers school and then the third time your drivers lisence would be taken away.

Slow drivers affect our diving drasticly.

i think that we should be allowed to play tackle football at school because two hand touch is too easy and in two hand touch we agrue about if we tagged them or not plus tackle is alot more fun

dorothy said...

The rule I would change isParking in hte rink allowed during school.You can park there before school starts and after school ends. That way we can play at the rink, shoot some baskets and that6 students are safe to play there because no cars are going to come and park in the rink during recess.

The rule that i would change in school would be we that are aloud to chew gum.
I see people might stick it under
their chair and stuff like that,but
one year we were aloud to chew gum at school and there wasn't any gum under the seats or on the ground. Plus I have a friend that when she chews gum she can consentrate better. So I think we should be aloud to chew gum.

The rule I would change would be everything is free every one year,2010,2012,2014,etc.

The rule that I would change is that we have to be at scool by 8:30if we changed the time to something like 10:30 I think it would beifit others because some people aren't morning people and it might be hard to wake up in the morning but if we got to sleep in it would be easy to wake up. Also kids might be more concentrated on their school work instead of dazing off in class. I mean we already spend 7 hours at school + homework and that = a lot of stress so I think that if we took a couple of hours off school i wouldn't harm anyone! But I think for the older students grade 11 and 12 should have the normal school time because for them school is a big thing for getting in to college. It also effects parents cause they have to get up and drive you to school so they can also sleep in on school days. Also we can stay up a little bit later at night to give us time to: finish up homework, socialize, activities and stuff.

the rule i would change is homework on the weekends because I don't even like homework so that would be pretty awesome if there was no homwork on the weekends

Tyson said...

I agree with Erin... but the law I would change would be that once your 12 you should be givin a cell-phone, It would make life alot easer because you don't have to try to find a phone if you need to call someone really bad or if it's an emergicy for something. It would be safer some times because if your getting robbed or something like that and you didn't have a cell-phone you couldn't call 911 but if you did you could. I think you should still be allowed if your younger then 12 but you can't get it for free.

vic s said...

The law I would like is that there
is only three days of schoolin a week. Tuesday,Wednesday and Thursday. Then we will have four days of weekends and we can sleep in longer. Plus the teacher only needs to work for three days insteed of five.

Danielle said...

I think a rule that should be changed is that we would be aloud to play tackle football at recess.
The only way that it might affect others is that someone might get hurt, but I don't think it's very likely.

Natalie said...

i think we should be allowed to run in the halls as long as only like 2 or 3 people are in the hall, because if you need to get somewhere quickly, you can't do that unless you're running!

alexis said...

i think you should be alowed to chew gum during tests the reason i say in tests is because i dont know about you about you but it makes me focase as long as your not one of those people who plays with your gum.

I think computer time should be allowed on school days because computers can teach you how teach you how to type more faster and
computer games can make you happy.

Kaitlyn said...

the rule i would change would be lessening the school hours, making school start at 10:00 and end at 3:15.

how would this affect others?
people would get more sleep and be able to consentrate better becuse they wouldn't be so tierd.

Anna said...

the rule i would like to change is
is that the school shouldn't tell us how long school hours have to be i think we should have to go to school for at least 2 classes, long or short and we should be able to choose what classes we want to have but recess and lunch dont count and still be able to graduate and become either a loner job or like a side walk salesmen or a good job like a dentist or a teacher so ya thats the one rule i want to change cause even teachers have to admit whe there not having
the greatest day they dont want to be at school as much as kids do.

Regan said...

I also agree that we should be able to play tackle football. It is a lot more fun than touch, it makes you a tougher competitor and it is more realistic. How lame would it be if in the CFL and NFL they played touch football?!

Kid's need to keep it real!

jon M. said...

The rule I would like to change is that we can't have our ipods in class. I would like to my ipod in class. This would benefit my class (society) by when we have breaks, we can have something to do rather than talk.

Andrew Anderson said...

I think that the law I would like canged is that kids would be able to vote so everybody could be a part - we have opinions too.

josh v. said...

josh said...

i think we should be able to play tackle football at school because we have lots of arguments in 3 hand touch. like (you only got me with 2 hands.)

jakek said...

a rule i would like to change is the time school starts.I want school to start at 11:00 so that we can sleep in more.this will ley kids wake up and be more ready for it.

MarissaT said...

The rule I would change would be some things be free in stores for people who can't afford anything.
The reasons why his would effect people would be:1.poor people could get the things they need.
2.Everyone would be happy.
3.Not many taxes for poor people.

i would change animal testing there should not be a such thing as animl testing for one it harms them and i dont think anyone would want to be tested with perfume in there eyes and its wrong. plus it wouldnt feel veryu good,and it would taste really really BAD!!

jon r said...

The law I would change is kids voting kids should be aloud to vote because when I watch voting on tv wish I could vote.

vittorio said...

i would like the driving limit changed

Kaitlyn said...

A rule or law i would like to have changed is that schools and universitys wouldn't give out any homework.
this would affect others in these ways:

1: students would get to spend more time doing what the wait to do things like playing outside, extra coricliar activites etc.

2: teachers wouldn't need to worry about students not finishing their homework.

alexis schulz said...

another rule i would like changed is that i think that school should start at 9:30 instead of 8:30 because

1. if you are tierd your brain doesnt function the way it is supposed to

2.teacher's wouldnt have to worry about sayin oh im sooo tierd i would love to sleep in a bit


the only way i think this would affect others is that they would get a bit lazier every time
