At least two students from a Georgia High School have been suspended after sharing images online of crowded hallways.
The photos which prompted the suspension depicted packed hallways, massively overcrowded, showing countless students not appearing to practice social distancing and with few masks visible.
In the time of a global pandemic, it’s easy to see why lots of people are disgusted.

One of the suspended teens, Hannah Watters, 15, told Buzzfeed she received a five-day, out-of-school suspension for posting one photo and one video on Twitter.
One of the photos she posted had a caption which read:
Day two at North Paulding High School. It is just as bad. We were stopped because it was jammed. We are close enough to the point where I got pushed multiple go to second block. This is not ok. Not to mention the 10% mask rate.
Shortly afterwards she was pulled into the school’s office and told she had violated their code of conduct for using her phone for social media and taking photos of minors without consent – both of which seem much less serious than the risk of spreading COVID-19…
What do you think about the school’s decision?
