ACT Writing Prompts — ACT Practice 21

YouTube.com is famous for being the world’s largest video website, and it offers millions of videos that could be viewed for learning. However, your school’s administration has decided to block the website because so many students seem to be using it as a distraction: when students go to the library or study hall to work on a computer, they often end up watching videos instead. To limit student distraction, administrators now only allow teachers to use YouTube. While they claim this will help students to focus, many students insist that Youtube in school provides access to learning that should continue to be allowed. In your opinion, should students have access to Youtube in school?
