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.
