Cora Szakmary started this petition to shenendehowa central school district

Approximately two weeks ago (as of 11/2/2020) the Shenendehowa Central School District disabled the google feature that allows students and people to change their profile picture. This has disturbed many students and many complaints have been thrown around in regards to this problem. Students have complained about their inability to express themselves, similar to the ongoing debate about school uniforms vs no school uniforms. Based on previous polls in the past, most students disagree with having to wear uniforms because, like mentioned before, it takes away their freedom. 90% of students nationwide all agree that school uniforms are not good, and much in the same fashion as we believe for the Shenendehowa Google Profile Picture issue.

This petition is on our behalf as a school. On our behalf as people of freedom. On our behalf as a democracy. We want people to have their freedom back, not restrained to the confines that we are put under. This was never seen as an issue in the past, and taking away this feature that we use so often was so startling. We never had any reason, we never received complaints, nor did we receive any warning. Just like that, in the span of a week or two, gone. Students want it back, and this petition is exactly how we will get it back.

As you might have noticed in what is above, our petition wants to raise awareness and change the restriction of the profile picture. We want our students to feel free, and we are aware that some students have been using their pictures for inappropriate means. However, restraining all of the student body for these few “trouble-makers” is unfair and unacceptable. Isn’t this what we wanted? Freedom for all? Punishing all because of a few people out of line is simply against what Americans stand for.
