A private school in Kent has been criticized after the school principal asked students who did not wear masks to wear traditional badges.
The Farringtons School in Chislehurst has been ‘criticized’ by some parents for asking students not to wear a veil to wear a yellow badge – which has “inappropriate” resembling yellow stars.
The school has made eye masks available to students in classrooms and corridors as they are affected by the rising cost of COVID. Headmaster David Jackson wrote a letter to parents stating that students who are not allowed in school for £ 34,000 a year ‘must wear a yellow badge’ and some students must wear a face mask ‘until further notice.’
Jackson wrote: “Given the high number of cases, we have also considered reinstating compulsory facial wear in classrooms and other high school areas, such as corridors … Students who were not allowed to wear a mask last year are no longer allowed and should wear a yellow badge to indicate this.”
A spokesman for the school said: “The purpose of establishing a badge for students who have not registered a mask is to avoid repeated criticism of not wearing a mask.
Do I really think it is wrong to tag people and make them stand out?
Critics have argued that wearing badges for unregistered students is unnecessary and the school ignored the ‘history’ of yellow badges condemning Jews who were forced to show up in Nazi-occupied Europe.
Some thought that this was the way school was doing. Self-identification is not the same as what the Nazis did in the 30s.
Someone added, “Is this the star of David? No. Is it a star mentioned anywhere? No. So what a connection it is here ”.
