We all wear these plastic lanyards, but are they any good? What was their intended purpose, and what would they change about it? I decided to ask different people what they thought about the school lanyards.

I asked them what they thought about school issued lanyards, what they would change about them, and what their intended use was.

Kameron S. – “Student ID´s are worth it and were intended a student´s identity. I would allow more customization to the lanyards.”

Jon L. – “Student ID’s can be very annoying because of the material of the lanyard, but it keeps away others from attempting to breach in and cause commotions and awareness towards one person who aren’t in the school. I would change the school lanyard badges into uniforms instead of lanyards  or change the material to make it more comfortable.”

Mark Hammiter (Teacher) – “Student ID´s are worth it and they were created for safety to quickly identify a students identity; I wouldn’t change anything about this.”

Although many people want to take these lanyards in different directions, most of us agree that the lanyards, as scratchy and annoying they can be, are created for our safety, and many students agree that they’re worth it.
