Sounds like something a "pusher" would say...Kidding.I'm not in the classroom so I have no idea how it impacts the ability to focus in school. I've heard varying reports, but the majority have stated that it helps kids that have trouble focusing. I think our biggest problem in the education world right now isn't fidget spinners, but the focus on learning too much too quickly. When I was in Kindergarten a ton of time was spent on socialization and how you were expected to act in school and treat other people. Now we expect kids to be able to read and do math and a host of other things. I would argue that it's more important for them to learn how to focus, treat others well, and a couple other skills so that they can learn effectively later on, but maybe I'm also an idiot.
Wow, I went off on a tangent there.
Spinners aren't evil. Kids are.
