Every school, every classroom and every teacher has rules for students to follow, no matter the learners’ ages. These rules often address responsibilities like being on time, being prepared, being courteous to staff and other students, being respectful of property, doing your best and following any other rules that the school sets forth. 

While some students may see the rules as unnecessary or simply a way for teachers and administrators to control them, following school rules can be extremely important for safety, ensuring everyone has an equal chance at learning and preparing kids for the future, among other reasons.
