Should Schools Have Charging Stations in the Classroom?

Do you keep forgetting to charge your computer at home? Many students would enjoy having charging stations at school, However many teachers would not. There are many pros and cons to having computer chargers in the classroom environment. Who's side of this topic should schools support?

There are many pros to having computer chargers in the classroom environment. If there were chargers in the classroom environment then every student would have a charged computer. Also if there were chargers in a classroom environment students would not be required to charge their computers at home. Another reason having computer chargers in the classroom would be a good thing is that the school would have no need to give chargers out to students and then the school would not have to worry about students losing or breaking chargers as much.

However, There are also many cons to having computer chargers in the classroom environment. If there were chargers in the classroom environment then most students would be taking advantage of it and there would be so many chargers that people could trip over the chargers and get hurt. Also the amount of electricity it would take during the school day to charge everyone's computers would be immense and could cause electrical fires, power outages and massive electrical bills. Also it could make teachers only sit at their desks, for it would be hard to get across the classroom to help a student or teach face to face.

In my opinion, I think having chargers in the classroom would be a great idea. I am somebody who forgets to charge their computer at night and it would be very nice to see the school make some changes for those types of students. Also, since schools are very tech run, it would be a good change in my opinion as the world goes into technology more and more. I think that schools will eventually do this because schools will start to see students' grades drop just because they don't have a charged computer for the school day.

All in all, there are many pros and cons to having chargers and charging stations in classrooms. Many students would be happy with this change, although many teachers would not be happy with this change. Charging stations would be a very unique addition to the classroom environment, however, is this addition worth the effort?


Do you think having charging stations should be placed into classrooms?



Would you use a charging station if they were in the classroom?



How would this new addition help you?

  • I think their should be in at least most of the classrooms because sometimes we forget to charge our computer and sometimes we get hom late and juts so tired we forget. I dont think teachers should be so mad about it especially since they get to plug theirs in all day and we cant

    • I totally agree that there should be charging stations in most classrooms but not all of them, only the ones that we use our computers in a lot, and yes I get tired and forget to to plug in my computer at night a lot.

  • I think that charging stations would help but it is still our responsibility to keep it charged but I forget all the time and many other kids do to. There are already multiple outlets in classrooms as is so I don't think we need more. Teachers just don't need to be so pressed when our computer is dead.

    • I totally agree, I always forget to charge my computer and some teachers do get very pressed about it.

  • I don't think charging stations are super necessary because kids can charge their computers easily at home. If they were for phones, most people aren't on their phones enough for it to die during the school day if they charged it the night before. I think this all has to do with wether you charge your devices at night/ at home or not.

    • I don't exactly agree with your opinion, you, while many other may remember to charge your computers at home whilst me and many other forget to do it a lot.

  • I don't think schools should install charging stations. Right now, if your computer dies any teacher will let you plug it in. It is your responsibility to plug in your computer at night, and if you don't it is your responsibility to bring a charger and charge it during class. Also, if the school didn;t give out chargers to students, the student wouldn't be able to use their computer very much on the weekend or it will die.

    • I disagree with your opinion, you may remember to charge your computer, I undertsand its a responsibility to do it at home, but you may not have your charger with you when it is dead.

    • I agree that charging the computer is each students responsability and should be done at home but it would be nice to have the opition to do it if you forget one day or tou haven't been able to charge your computer at home.

  • i think chargimg stations should be added to classrooms. I would use it to chargemy phone and airpods. I could also use it to charge my computer. It would help me because some nights i forget to change my phone or airpods. So it would help me stay happy.
