Parkland students are mocking new clear backpacks

Other attendees include David Hogg, Matt Deitsch and Jaclyn Corin who are students at Marjory Stoneman High School. Corin posted the

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) is adding additional law enforcement officers to the school and the district is "exploring options for consolidating points of entry for students and staff to include utilizing metal-detecting wands and potentially installing permanent metal detectors".

Following the shooting on February 14 that left 17 dead and sparked a nationwide student-led campaign against gun violence, Florida's Broward County school board have outlined a new list of safety protocols.

School officials are also debating on whether they should install metal detectors.

"We need real change", she painted on the front of the bag.

"I definitely feel safer, but in no way is school going to be a place of cognitive education and creativity when it feels like a jail cell", he said.

One student's response to the clear backpack rule.

Many students have lashed out at the new policy, saying it made them feel like they were in prison.

When the Parkland students return this week to school after their spring break, they will be allowed only to carry clear backpacks on campus.

"Starting off the last quarter of senior year right, with a good ol' violation of privacy!" she said in another tweet.




Rather than feeling safer, students have taken to social media to mock the beefed-up security.

Robinson felt the rules were counterproductive and an invasion of privacy, noting that the gunman was not a student of the school at the time of the shooting. "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?"

"My new backpack is nearly as transparent as the NRA's agenda", tweeted one student.

"We come to school to learn, so I don't think that we should need to subject ourselves to these measures".

They're too restrictive, yet somehow not effective enough, they say.

Emma Gonzalez, center, and the other student activists from Parkland cheer on stage at the end of the March for Our Lives rally in Washington.

It's unclear whether students will be allowed to have a bag within their backpack to hide personal items.

"Until we see all of us on the same page working together, nothing's going to happen", she said.

Junior Cameron Kasky tweeted a photo of his clear backpack full of tampons Tuesday as a comment on the measure.
