1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

An Editorial (4E Jenny Te)

School authority has recently banned students from bringing MP3 players to school.  They believe that the ban will help improve student life.  However, I do not agree with the decision to ban students from bringing MP3 players to school.  The arguments I would like to make are as follows.
First of all, many students do not enjoy their lessons because they may feel bored.  When they feel bored, they can listen to some English songs if they have MP3 players under the supervision of teachers.  With such practice, students can take initiative in learning and enjoy the lessons.  They can then find it interesting to learn English.  Therefore, MP3 players help students learn actively.
Secondly, student’s pressure can be released by listening to MP3 players especially when they listen to some classical and soft music which can, ultimately, help relax themselves emotionally.  Furthermore, using MP3 players can let students concentrate on their work as they can’t hear the others.  Then they will not be disturbed even the environment around is very noisy.  They can still focus on their tasks. 
Bringing MP3 players to school can help students improve their social life and mental health.  According to a research, listening to music can make people happier and more confident.  Therefore, students will be more positive and they become optimistic eventually.
Schools ban students from bringing MP3 players to school because they believe it will disturb students to study.  I believe the policy will be more effective if it is implemented fairly and consistently without offering any privilege to some people.  It helps not only improve student life, but also relax themselves by releasing the stress in a more interesting way and they will love English more.
