Walking through the halls of BHS you begin to notice the large amount of students with headphones in their ears. Depending on the person music can either block out noise, or for others it can enhance their ability to focus.
“Music makes me block out all of the haters,” said Junior Mia Janke “It helps me focus and do what I need to do.”
Students don’t see it as a problem, but certain teachers on the other hand have a different perspective.
“We are not at a Justin Bieber concert,” said Social Studies Teacher Mrs. Khalil. “You don’t need to be wired up in school. It is time to focus here.”
For instance, some teachers believe that music can increase students ability to focus. They do not see an issue regarding headphones during work time.
“I don’t want to be the phone/headphone police,” said Science Teacher Mrs. Rodenwald. “During independent work time I have no issue with kids listening to their own music, as long as they are working hard.”
