Clear bag policy causes confusion for some students

As part of their safety policies, some Chicago public schools now require students to use only clear bags to carry their books and supplies to class.

At Curie High School, 4959 South Archer Avenue, the policy has been in place for more than a week.

But students say they were caught off guard today they were told they would not be allowed to bring their old style multi colored backpacks into the building because they would be violating school rules.

A message posted on the school website says students who show up at the school without clear backpacks will not be allowed in the building. They can leave those backpacks with security and pick them up at the end of the day.

But some students who spoke with WGN said using clear backpacks puts them at risk for having money, phones and other personal items stolen because it is easier to see those item in clear bags.

One student said he bought his clear backpack for $25. Others say they cheap jerseys will have to do the same because they have no choice.

CPS tells WGN that no students were turned away from Curie High School. They were given the option to leave their old style book bags with security and pick them up at the end of the day. Some students chose not to do so.

The students were told to either give their book bags to security and get a plastic bag for the remainder of the day or to go home. Those students that went outside stayed on campus grounds and security came out and told them to go home instead of telling them to go indoors. This is from first hand experience. Yes, the policy was in place before school started but it was never enforced seriously or rarely brought up so many people just ignored it. This is also true for all of the previous years. Not only that but the lost and found at this school is very unreliable. Many students, myself included, just don trust the security staff as much if at all anymore. I don understand why all of these changes occurred so quickly. I also going to bring up that the book bags have not deterred people from bringing in illegal paraphernalia and such. I think, if anything, it has taught them how to hide it more efficiently.

As a personal student in Curie, I am outraged. I, myself, did bring in my normal all cloth book bag today, unaware that such decisions were going to be made. I was caught by surprise. I don wear the book bag to rebel; I do so because I happen to carry MANY books AND personal belongings. In the past three years, I have gone through many clear books bags because they were too cheap to carry all my belongings. With my cloth bag, I can carry everything and not worry about when or where it will rip. Needless to say, I found myself missing my entire first period class because they were too reluctant to even allow us to get to class on time. I believe their focus as a school should be our education, not clear bags. Also, to say that the information was posted on the website is ridiculous. As a student, I can assure all that we do not check that sight constantly or at all. Something this big should have been said on the intercom. Money does not grow on trees, so such actions should have only been taken if Curie actually supplied the bags, but that not the case we are supposed to buy our own. The school has lost a lot of support. Considering how rude some staff were toward people who happened to not have a clear book bag was plain prejudice.

I just want to say that CPS did in fact tell people to go home. They did not give students much of an option. They were EXTREMELY rude about everything. I almost was late to my first period, mind you I HAVE a CLEAR bag! It is so ridiculous. Curie Staff members even refuse to talk to parents about the issue. Clear book bags, in fact, make it easier for students to steal and invade someone personal privacy. If the school wants to buy everybody a $600 smart phone then sure! Let all have clear book bags, but until then, the school should really respect students personal privacy. There is so much drama over a book bag. There are more important issues in the world. Why work extremely hard to enforce a book bag rule rather than help people in need. People care so much about very little problems when they don care at all about the world real issues. Is this what humanity has come to?

The clear book bag rule has been in place for more then a decade. I surprise parents and students did not know about it or maybe they chose to ignore it. The information is posted on the website. if you don want your $600.00 phone stolen then don take it to school, furthermore if you can afford such a phone then you can afford a $25.00 bag. Mr. Robert H Jordan should be focusing more on teachers using their new wages for buying these ungrateful students school supplies since our mayor chooses to spend money on renovating Wrigley field rather than our students and our schools

MIAMI FEBRUARY 02: A judges gavel rests on top of a desk in the courtroom of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the Negro District. The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images).
