Mandatory Transparent Backpacks Violate Students' Privacy Rights

Across the USA, hundreds of students, teachers and other people with huge social platforms were inspired by their persistence enough to say that they are standing with these advocates on their journey to change.

Following the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 students and staff dead, transparent backpacks are now the only school bags allowed on the campus. They calculated the $1.05 amount by dividing the total amount of money his campaign received from the NRA by the number of students in the state.

Some students compared their school to an airport, others to a prison. "My school was a place where everyone felt comfortable, it was a home away from home, and now that home has been destroyed".

Security has been bolstered by additional sheriff's deputies since the school reopened two weeks after the February 14 shooting.

"Feminine hygiene products that we need, we have to carry with us", said student Kacey Bartley.

Students from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida have been at the centre of those protests, demanding more from their politicians and legislators and calling on US President Donald Trump to confront the issue.

MSD student Delaney Tarr tagged Senator Marco Rubio in a tweet that showed her backpack. In another tweet, she said, "starting off the last quarter of senior year right, with a good ol' violation of privacy!" "No matter how much we tell them to listen to us there will always be a backpack manufacturer saying, "Hey they need clear backpacks, we got you covered, or a Barricade Renter saying, "Hey do you need any extra fences that will create the illusion of safety but are easily jumpable and make all the students feel like a combination of prisoners and livestock?"

Streaming Service Starts April 12
Some sporting events, such as this year's NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, will not be available due to contracts with other networks. That will include content from Disney , Pixar , Marvel , and Lucasfilm , comprised of both movies and exclusive media.

"Just implement a system that works".

"This backpack is probably worth more than my life", student Carmen Lo wrote on Twitter.

Metal detectors and metal detecting wands are not now in place on campus, but their use is being considered. A letter from Principal Ty Thompson sent to families on Friday said that step has not been taken yet.

However, their high spirits were slightly dampened when they learned that their school's first concrete action after the shooting would be the grim backpack measure.

"This isn't a solution to making sure that a tragedy like the one that happened at Douglas doesn't happen again", she said.

But safety may come at the cost of a productive school environment, he said. "But it made me feel better because we all looked the same".
