Television viewing is a very important part of our student’s lives. There is a big issue on whether it should be allowed in our public schools. It should be allowed to some extent, all depending on the age group. I think age is very important when it comes to viewing TV in school. The students should be divided into three age groups: young, teen and adults. These age groups can help us distinguish what kind of viewing will be allowed, if any.
TV Viewing can be a very good learning experience for young students depending on the viewing material. Young children tend to copy most of what they see on TV because of that fact we must be very careful with the viewing material. The young kids should be limited to educational films only. Any other type of TV viewing should be done at home at explained by the parent.
Teens are more mature, therefore their TV viewing should be decreased because of the fact that at that age they need to learn more about life and what goes on around them. The best way to do that is through life experience not through TV. For example if a student saw drug use on TV he / she would have no idea about drugs until they experiment with the drug, or see the effects of drugs on someone in real life. Teenagers are at a point where they can distinguish reality from fiction. Schools should focus on giving teenagers more projects about life.

For example marriage projects that are not real. This way they can experience life more realistically. Adults can watch whatever they want. At this point they know right from wrong, what’s real and what’s fiction. They should know what’s appropiate for them to watch. They know the difference between entertaining TV viewing and educational viewing.
They can handle TV viewing more maturely. TV viewing can help adults in many ways. We are able to turn the things that happen on TVs into small topics of discussion. The reason I recommend TV viewing more for adults is because I think they can handle some of the graphic nature better than young children and teenagers. Young kids might get scared and teenagers might make fun of the material.
