Get more of a student focused view, on this being implemented.
Weston College should of brought this to either their Student Union or given letters to it's students in regarding their views and opinions on implementing this idea. As a Weston College student, you're not an idenficational sheep. You are there to learn and have a bright future. As a place of learning, you shouldn't be forced to wear an ID Cards around your neck like a branded sheep. What makes this worse for the colleges perspective is the fact that if you wished to opt out from wearing the ID Card around your neck, you will be kicked off Weston College campus, now this is dangerous to conduct; because your future is at jeopardy for the sole fact Weston College wish to control you as a branded sheep to ensure you stay on campus or to know you are etc (there maybe other reasons to wear them which aren't known yet). ID Cards are an essential part of knowing who's a student and who's not, before ID Card round necks were implemented, you had to have your ID Card on you at all time and if asked you had to produce your ID to the member staff on request. Now this more of an ethical stance on ID's and a great use of common sense to stop people that are not students coming on to college property. But by forcing it's students to wear these round their necks is not only undermining student trust for Weston College it's also making the college act as if it desires full control over where there students go. So if you feel the same, as a Weston College student or if you're not you still have the right to voice your opinion by signing this petition. This way there maybe a change in the way IDs are used and may revert back to being asked on request by staff.
