Parkland student: Going to school 'feels like jail'

The Sun Sentinel reported that Broward County Public Schools officials were providing the new bags as students returned Monday to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Students at a Florida high school where 17 people died in a mass shooting are receiving clear backpacks.

Students are also required to wear identification badges at all times.

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

As well as armed officers and barricades, one of the exclusive rules is that every student must carry a clear backpack (provided to them, so kindly, "at no cost").

Clear backpacks may deter some from bringing weapons into school, but without metal detectors people can still hide them in folders or in between papers, junior Isabella Pfeiffer said.

"Until we see all of us on the same page working together, nothing's going to happen", she said. Many were quick to point out clear backpacks had been used in a lot of USA schools since the Columbine school massacre in 1999.

During The Joe Pags Show on Friday, Nugent slammed what he called "the poor, mushy brained children" who organized the March for Our Lives on March 24, which advocated for tighter gun control.

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

Tuesday was better, he said, although acts of defiance against the measures from students on campus have dominated much of the discussion on the ground and on social media.

"We come to school to learn, so I don't think that we should need to subject ourselves to these measures. Similar to what they do at court houses and the airport!" he said.

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

Thanks to the outspokenness and energy of surviving students like David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, the tragic shooting has sparked a movement against gun violence and for common-sense gun control laws. "I don't think the guy can be fixed".

She said she wants to see more modern technology used to secure the school. Sports bags and instrument cases are now checked at entry points and must be dropped off with a teacher or coach before school starts.

"Hopefully over time, we will be able to fine-tune the process, while maintaining the safety/security".
