Jefferson-Morgan should not open Wi-Fi for public use; while internet connection can provide benefits, such as search engines that could ask questions that students have or easy access to digital study guides, they also have the potential to negatively impact students. Wi-Fi could bring distractions to students just as much as they could help them, whether it be through pictures, videos, or games.

Wi-Fi is used by many different students at home. If they were given the opportunity to access it during school hours of the day, odds are, they will become distracted. Even in an instance in which the student had to give up the access, they can become distracted simply by thinking about how they lost the access. For example, a student could have wished to search for a particular funny video or picture that normally could not be accessed, but as they were doing so, the privilege was taken away from them.

If a student is not distracting themselves, then they could be distracting others. Whenever the access is given to practically search anything that is desired, it is not difficult to find something funny or inappropriate. During the moments that something “interesting” is found, almost every student nearby flocks to see the media. If somebody else is seen laughing or disgusted, it is often times wondered “why” by others, so they go off to see for themselves.

Overall, Wi-Fi should not be allowed in Jefferson-Morgan due to the distractions that it could cause. Many students do not wish to hear other immature students as they try to learn, as they should be. So, even if the privilege was given, it would either be lost almost instantly or looked down upon by others trying to focus.
