Open campus encourages freedom and independence to do right

Many students have a tendency to leave the school's campus during the lunch period. To resolve this problem, Foothill High School ought to have an open campus.
An open campus may benefit not just the students but also the teachers and staff members. Giving responsibility to high school students can guide them to making wiser choices in life. The school can carefully observe and strictly enforce the attendance policies, ensuring those students who choose not to return to the school's campus after lunch are punished for their unwise choices.

An open campus can give students a break from their stressful schedule at school, and provide students with a feeling of independence and freedom.
School lunches don't offer a wide variety of food like eating at home or in restaurants. A school lunch menu can be complicated for students who are allergic to certain foods or on a special diet.

Some students are short of money to buy school lunches every day. So an open campus means students can also go home and eat lunch.
This means using the family grocery funds rather than spending more money on school lunches. Especially for low income families, an open campus offers a healthier option to low-cost school-provided lunches.

In the end, the benefits of an open campus surpass the disadvantages of an closed campus.
