Will This Prevent Future School Shootings?

The transparent backpacks are part of the program 'Escuela Segura' (Safe School ) to avoid violence in schools and in the coming days the State Government will deliver 10,000 more of these hoping the measure will help teachers and parents see what students are taking to school.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is incorporating a "clear backpack" rule for students after spring break

After a school shooting on February 14 that left 17 dead, the school is looking at changing a few things to prevent future incidents from happening. But will it prevent a non-student from walking into the school? What about hygiene products that female students have to carry with them? Should they be forced to showcase everything to their fellow peers? Some students are not happy about the change.

A majority of the students are not too thrilled with the new changes at their school. They claim the clear backpacks will not do anything to prevent a gunman from walking into the school. Also, it would feel more like a prison than a school.

Superintendent of Broward County Public Schools, Robert W. Runcie, announced the new rule. He also said that the district would provide the backpacks for free if a student couldn't afford one.

Metal detectors will also be placed at school entrances. All students and staff members will now be required to carry ID while they're on campus.

Students across the nation walked out of their classrooms for 17 minutes to show solidarity for the 17 killed in the February 14 attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and to make a nationwide appeal for changes in gun laws.
