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 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 think playing Baby over and over again to raise money was a mean, but good idea. It would be worse if they played Story of My Life by 1D, or The Base by Meghan Trainer. I wouldn’t mind listening to California Girls by Katy Perry or Animals by Maroon 5. I wouldn’t like being at that school.

In my opinion I think Justin Bieber is one of the WORST artists of the century! In some cases there are songs worse than any song that Justin Bieber has released. This case is very rare though. One song that I think is worse than this on is "Happy' by: Pharrel. That song is worse than any song by Justin Bieber. Although it may seem like I am a hater, I don't mind hearing songs over and over again. There are many songs I would not mind listening to. One of them is "Someone" by :Trevor Moran. Another song is any song that was written by One Direction. In my opinion, I would hate to have to listen to that song everyday at school. I honestly feel bad for all of those children that go that school. This is what I think about this article.

I hate to say it, but that is honestly hilarious! At least it is only that song, it could be worse! Like Rebecca Black’s “Friday"!

i totally agree
(I)it is kind of funny(,) but my school is to(o) good to do that(,) they would never want to torch(ur)e us with music(,) only with homework(.)

I think its basically bribeing the kids to pay them money to stop the music, its kinda wrong. Kids in higschool shouldn't be "tortured" like that its just wrong.

That's absolutely hilarious. If our school did that I'd probably be upset though because I do not like Justin Bieber. Also, any song would get annoying if you heard over and ever again everyday.

That's not cool.Why would they do that now they have the bieber fever. They should not do that to the students. That's mean but smart.

I think it is kind of funny how the whole school has to listen to the song " baby" by Justin Bieber until they get $500 for a donation. A worse song would be "payphone" by maroon 5. I wouldn't mind listening to ''the bass'' by Megan Trainer.
