    Yes. I'm speaking as a student here. I would bring energy drinks with me often because I would always go to sleep late from working on schoolwork. This would cause me to wake up late; therefore, I wouldn't have the time to actually have something to eat or drink in the morning, so I would bring an energy drink with me to school to have at lunch. Believe me, it was very helpful.

    However, I do believe they should only be allowed in middle and high schools. The last thing we need is elementary school children bouncing off the walls from drinking an energy drink. Also, those children are way too young for that much caffeine. It could hurt them.

    if it wasent for red bull i wouldent have gotten trough school ......... late night + work = no sleep (in other words i needed a pick me up)
    and besides that kids now dont go to bed untill like 3 or 4 in the morning so
    i would think teachers would rather have really awake kids than dead asleep kids.

    Oh, God, yes. If not that, then a coffee machine. Schools in the United States mercilessly violate our natural circadian rhythm. The least they can do is give us some caffeine.

    Kids should not be allowed to drink them, hell adults shouldn't drink them but for adults(hopefully) they won't have their hearts exploding where kids might have theirs go boom and no one wants that.

    There are very unhealthy for kids, and many will drink to many of them.

    All things like that should be banned, including coke.

    Absolutely not. They are unregulated, and have been shown in multiple studies to pose increased health risks to children.

    Even if it's banned from the school, I know I'd buy it from outside to give me a boost when I slept late the previous night and got a test or something..

    I don't think the schools should sell them. I don't think they belong in elementary schools. I think it takes quite an irresponsible parent to provide a young child with an energy drink: they have so much caffeine and sugar that it can be harmful. However, I do think high school students should be allowed to bring their own energy drinks from home.

    They shouldn't be made available but shouldn't be taken away from students, at least at HS level.

    Give them energy boosts but not those sugar and caffine drinks. Let them get hooked on coffee when their adults.

    Only in High Schools, though. Kids will drink them regardless of what you do, might as well have it out in the open where people can keep an eye on them. Maybe even have a limit of one or 2 per student per day.
    I know they're bad for your health, but seriously the world is chock full of risks. Even eating too many mandarins could give you health problems. But you'd have to eat alot.

    I don't think so.
    Curious how many of these students will end up chugging their e. drinks before getting to/back to school.
    Not selling them on school grounds is understandable, an outright ban feels... wrong. Especially for a public institution.

    I tell my students that they are bad for them. They cause problems with kidney infections and most kids have enough energy to not need to drink them.

    That's all the kids need.
    The teachers complain about their short attention span now. Wait till they have a class full of kids pumped up with caffeine and ginseng. lol good luck.

    You would be surprised for those with short attention spans or add some of the energy drinks in the proper quantity can be very effective to clear focus far better then the drugs the establishment is in a hurry to pump kids up with

    I know it's bad for you but that doesn't stop schools from feeding us other things and kids can just get it other ways. They should be allowed to sell it to us. It is our bodys and our decisions and highschool students are old enough to decide what the want to put in their body.

    It's not the schools responsibility it's the parents. If the parent isn't ok with it they can choose what the kid isn't allowed to have. You can put that information on their lunch acount and the kid won't be able to get them.

    What kids get at school is not going to change obesity. The things they eat all the other times determins that and how much they eat and exercise. To think school can do anything about that is a joke.

    Our Shakespear is the original version. The school does teach how to eat healthy and encouarge it, just no one gives a damn so obviously it isn't doing much. What they teach us isn't going to be what we base our lifes off of.
