Your views: Banning slang 'Ridiculous! Kids are kids'

Here are some of your views on banning slang words in school. Join the debate by tweeting us your comments @itvlondon.


@itvlondon ridiculous! Kids are kids. Never been any different. Remember The Fonz? 'Wicked'? What rubbish this is. Kids grow up - we did!


@itvlondon my daughter uses all those words at times. But can so slay anybody with her diction. So clearly banning is not the answer.


@itvlondon definitely the right decision. Using words like that will not help in the work place so stop them while they are young.
