School tortures students with Justin Bieber song

School tortures students with Justin Bieber song
High school students in the small western Washington community of Tenino (Ten-NINE-o) are raising money for a cause — supporting orphans at a school in the west African country of Ghana.

One unconventional strategy: they're playing the Justin Bieber song "Baby" during breaks between classes and at lunch time until the campus raises $500. They hope students will donate to stop the school from paying the song.

KING-TV reports they have raised more than $330. Some students were quickly pleading for an end. Said student Zack Chamberlain, "My head is about to explode right now."

Student government president Connor Stakelin concedes that "for some of them it's incentive to donate because they don't want to hear it anymore."

Other students don’t mind the Bieber music. It’s the repetition that’s getting to them.

“We’re done listening to that song over and over again. It’s getting very bad. I just want to go home,” said Jasmine Moore, a student.

KING says the idea to support Crossover International Academy came from Tenino Elementary School Principal Dave Ford.

Tenino is about 60 miles south of Seattle.

Critical thinking challenge: If Justin Bieber is bad, what song would be worse? Or would song would you not mind hearing over and over again?

I think playing the Justin Bieber song, "Baby", over and over again to get people to donate is not right. Staff should get students motivated another way instead of torturing students to pay money to stop the music. They should try getting students to donate for a good cause, not to stop music from playing in the halls and during lunch.

Wow! That's pretty interesting. I would just want to leave that school the first day. I would literally make my parents find me a new school.

The worse song in my opinion would be dark horse even though i am a fan of Katy Perry ,and i wouldn't mind listening to stay with me over and over again!

I would hate to listen to any of his songs! I feel sorry for the kids at that school:( I with that kid who said their heads going to explode.

There is nothing worse than a Justin Beiber song. I hope those poor students finally got that song to stop. I can't even listen to it once!

Why would a school torture students with Justin Bieber songs. Also how could KING-TV raise more than $300. Also I would cry out to the teachers to make the Justin Bieber songs to end.

I feel so sorry for those students. Justin Beiber music is horrible! That is a bad way to raise money but I guess it works.

I am so very sorry for all the people at this school. This music is annoying, and the person isn't great either. Although, One Direction isn't something I could handle as much as this or at all. It just depends on the type of music. A better way to do this is get baby pictures from the parents and post them for everyone to see. Then a lot of people would donate!

I don’t know why people hate Justin Bieber so much. Not all his music is bad. I think people are more jealous of his success than hate him. Many women desire him and because of that people despise of his music. Or his music might be really bad to listen to. I don’t understand why people still listen to his music and give him all this publicity even though they say they hate him. People shouldn’t give Justin all this fame. They should focus on economic problems than complain about Justin Bieber and still listen to his music. Any publicity is good whether its negative or positive.

The song that would be crazy, out of your mind would be Let It Go!!! This song drives me crazy because my sister sings 24/7.And if that happened I would leave the school even if I have to be a hobo living on the lonely streets with no money. By Liam M
