Parkland Students Are Mocking New Mandatory Clear Backpacks on Social Media

First, students lost their classmates and teachers.

"Many students are actually unhappy with the clear backpacks, as they believe that it infringes on their privacy, so they wrote messages on pieces of paper and put it into the clear backpacks", she said.

Another student tweeted a photo of her clear backpack that had nothing but a handwritten note inside which read: 'This bag contains everything politicians care about, besides money'.

'We are doing this in order to demonstrate the fact that we stand together on all issues and that we, as a student body, refuse to be reduced to nothing more than dollars and cents, ' Koerber said.

"You have no privacy now no matter what", added Juliana Campos, another student.

Requiring students to wear clear bags to school isn't uncommon and the rule has been enforced in quite a few schools across the USA in response to youth bringing weapons such as guns and knives to class.

"I thought her comments were well placed to a guy who had gone off the rails. spewing the hate", Nugent said.

"Just implement a system that works". "It's bad that girls will have no privacy concealing their feminine products, and these bags won't last a week with real textbooks in them".

The school will provide them to the students free of charge. "I don't think the issues that have come out of this movement that people are debating and disputing about are backpack related".

Additional security personnel will also be present on the Parkland, Fla., campus, and the school district is considering metal detectors, Runcie said at the time.

Principal Ty Thompson said the school would begin using a single entrance instead of four entry points.

"This isn't a solution to making sure that a tragedy like the one that happened at Douglas doesn't happen again", she said. "And with a million things hitting me at once, I need to make sure plans make sense and are doable".

Cameron Kasky, one of the founders of March for Our Lives, felt the clear backpack rule was a "step in the wrong direction", but urged students to keep moving forward in their fight for tighter gun control.

Safety expert and former police officer Michael Dorn said clear backpacks were not an effective method in preventing school shootings.

"I get it", senior Demitri Hoth said to CNN but, "it feels like we are losing individualism".
