Why do we have cheerleaders in middle school? Why do we need cheerleaders? We really don’t. In middle school we are just learning how to do different sports and different things. But the cheerleaders think just because they but on their little uniforms they rule the school and other places. Even public places they think they can say who can be there and who can’t. I think we shouldn’t have cheerleaders until high school because right now at this age they are to young and immature to understand they are no better than anyone else.
