Fidget Spinners... Good Or Bad For The Classroom?

By JustinCOnTheAir

If you don’t know what these things are... let me explain... Its a little “toy” that you hold in one hand and you spin it! 

The company that makes them says that it helps with ADD. so kids can fidget with this thing in class instead of disrupting the room... and potentially it will help them pay attention to what the teacher is saying... 

--> the science behind it

I have one and it is great when you’re trying to think of ideas... just sit at your desk fidget with this thing and brainstorm... ITS GREAT! 

But according to a few articles... some schools are banning them! two stories out of Chicago and Boston say they are banning them in schools, and their reason is (according to the Boston article they are highly distracting...) 

Do you agree with the school? or should they be allowed? - JustinCOnTheAir
