School suspends two students for posting viral pics of crammed hallways

Two students in Georgia claimed they were suspended after posting photos on social media showing crammed hallways filled with maskless kids at their high school. Hannah Watters, 15, told BuzzFeed News she received a five-day suspension for posting a photo and a video on Twitter. Another student took a viral photo showing a crowded hallway filled with dozens of kids at North Paulding High School.

The students should be commended for recognizing a problem and drawing attention to it. Schools should absolutely mandate the wearing of masks at a minimum for in person students while on campus. The school has a vested interest in taking steps to avoid the spread of a pandemic and so long as they only mandate masks on campus or at school events there is no violation of rights. Having students return to school but not making students and teachers wear masks is insane! The school I teach at is mandating students and teachers to wear masks. If I see a student take their mask off in class they will put it back on or leave my room until it is on. Students that don't want to wear masks have an online option but they have to check in once every 24 hours on school days by completing an assignment or some other simple check for understanding.
