#6- MANDATORY- Should middle school students walk to school?

Should middle school students be allowed to walk to school? Yes or No? In my opinion we should be allowed to walk to school. If you are in middle school you are between the ages of 10-14. That is an age where you are becoming mature and smarter. We know that if a stranger asks us to come in their car for candy that we should say "NO". Also, we know the way to school and if parents are really that worried, you can walk with a friend or a group. If no one lives near you, then you can get a phone. There, problem solved! There is nothing wrong with walking to school. Maybe your parents should be worried if you are in elementary school because you were very little but now you are growing up. We understand the difference between right and wrong and we know how to behave appropriately (or at least most of us do). 

Some parents believe that walking to school is dangerous. It is very unlikely to get kidnapped or get hurt. Also, when walking, there are other people walking too. There are people that go to your schools and if there are many people, the likely hood of getting kidnapped is very low. 

Therefore, middle school students should be allowed to walk to school.
