Student creativity shines through in protesting ID badges

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Oct 22, 2010  ||   

Students at Arizona-based Prescott High School are protesting the school’s newly enforced ID badges by taping them to their foreheads, making them into t-shirts, defacing them with their favorite sports teams and cartoon characters and one student even hanging his through the hole in his stretched earlobe, reports The Daily Courier.

The school recently ordered all of its 1,850 students to wear their ID badges at all times when on campus, which the school says is part of a national trend toward visible identification cards to address concerns about school safety and security. Students, however, say the badges clash with their personal styles.

Vice Principal Deb Salcedo understands the student complaints but said the badges address the school’s number one concern, which is safety. “It’s a big school,” Salcedo says. “The IDs will help determine who belongs here.”

In Arizona, high schools in the Mesa and Peoria unified school districts are among others with similar ID badge requirements.
