Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas got their clear backpacks this morning. Passed out by the school as one of the new security measures after the February shooting. @DianneG has the photos from Tanzil Philip and Connor Dietrich pic.twitter.com/S4sDzYHgqo— David Shortell (@davidgshortell) April 2, 2018
The students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas kicked off this school week with a new policy in place saying that they have to carry all their belongings in clear plastic backpacks. After the recent shooting in which 17 were killed on their campus administration feels that this is one way to increase safety. Although the policy was put into place with the best intentions and to promote safety the students are not feeling the change. Some decided to turn the poison into medicine and decorate their backpacks to promote the movement towards tighter gun control laws. What are your thoughts- should the school be able to enforce this new policy? Do you think this policy should be in all schools?
Tomorrow we will have to go through security check points and be given clear backpacks, my school is starting to feel like a prison.— Sarah Chadwick// #NEVERAGAIN (@Sarahchadwickk) April 2, 2018
Thousands of clear backpacks were donated to MSD...it’s a shame b/c they should’ve been given to a school that actually needs the supplies. But since we’re stuck with them, I decided to make the most out of the situation & decorate!! 👊🏼#MarchForOurLives pic.twitter.com/dgW7uNN536— Jaclyn Corin (@JaclynCorin) April 2, 2018
