Top Ten Most Common Rules at School


The Top Ten

1 Raise your hand before you speak

This list should be named "Most disobeyed school rules" - Animefan12

I think you should raise your hand before you speak so everyone knows your going to talk so they will listen

We had a presentation about this a couple of years ago in order to obey what we present and nobody change

Yeah there's a kid who says whatevever he wants whenever he damn well pleases and it's really funny. He got expelled.

2 No eating in class

I still eat in class without getting caught. Its easy just chew slowly so it looks like your not eating and have your food in your lap so no one sees. It works for me at least. - cosmo

When I am really hungry I eat some chips. So Put the bag in the bench and out the chips fast in your mouth without the teach notice and chew with your saliva. That what I do and I never got caught - TheTopTenVoter

I wish you could. A few years ago, I had lunch at 1:00 every day, and I was starving from 11-1 every day. It was torture. - Minecraftcrazy530

They want us to get ANOREXIA! OH NO! (obvious sarcasm)

5 No talking when the teacher is talking

Teacher: Why are you talking when I'm teaching?
Me: Why are you teaching when I'm talking? - Pegasister12

You should never talk when the teacher is talking because you might miss something important

It is right that we should not talk while our teacher is talking. My class seems a little talkative

This is the first rule you have to respect when you are in class.

6 Be respectful to other students

Could they teach that to my classmates? Because they don't know the definition of respectful. - CartoonsGirl

Oviously the kids at my school don't know the meaning of respecting opinions. - cosmo

My Friends are retarded I mean they are weirdo

My class does not know what 'respectful' mean.

7 Pay attention

I pay attention to the dreams I have in class does that count?

If you don't pay attention you don't get work done.

8 Get to school on time

My friends always late and they didn't say anything

My friends always late to come to school but the teachers didn't even know that they had come in.
