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

Don't blurt out that's rude.

2 Be on task

Task! My class even can fight my teachers back

The rule that nobody obeys.

Tasks are the worst thing when we are at school.It was a torture for me

3 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

I eat food in the whole day what u can do

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

6 Be respectful to other students

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

My Friends are retarded I mean they are weirdo

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

My class does not know what 'respectful' mean.

7 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.

8 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.

What if there is a fire or explosion. You have to run in situations like that. - cosmo

I've had a sprinting race with my best friend before! - Nateawesomeness

12 Don't chew gum

I disagree because it is not changing anything in your education

Gum actually helps it strengthens your teeth so yeah

My homeroom teacher came into class one day and she was chewing gum... so if the teachers are breaking this rule, it's kind of pointless. My classmates always chew gum. I don't chew it but I don't like it

We get after school detention for this

It's not vandalizing. It's called art. We learn it in school

17 Always use the bathroom at break and lunchtime

Ikr! I am a woman, which means I don't choose when stuff comes out of me. So... you'll just have to get a bloody chair then... oh well... - HyenaLover

That is wrong

So we have to pee our pants, then...

I agree I’m a lady I don’t choose what comes out I totally agree with HyenaLover

18 Use the correct uniform

In India, if it is any student's birthday, they are allowed to wear their favourite dresses. Dunno whether it is applied in other countries. - Animefan12
