My school authority has recently banned students from bringing MP3 players to school by some reasons. In my opinion, I hardly agree to ban students from bringing MP3 players to school.
First of all, students have a lot of pressure from their study especially before the examination. They may feel relaxed by using MP3 when they are exhausted in lessons. They may not be able to pay attention in class when they are exhausted. Teachers should give a break to students. At this moment, listening to music can help students calm themselves down emotionally. According to a university report, listening to music can make students relieve pressure.
On the other hand, students can strengthen their friendship when they share different types of music to each other. The teachers and students can also get closer. My best friend, Peter, who is studying in a famous school, can bring MP3 players to school. He told me that he loves his school because he can have freedom to listen to his favorite music when he is tired.
Monitoring students in bringing MP3 is actually easy since it offers the function of playing music only. Therefore, lessons will not be affected by MP3 in other means. They understand that teachers have no responsibility if any MP3 is missed. In short, the school authority should not ban students from bringing MP3 to school.
