  • Another way to look at this - make sure your children know that they have the right to tell the school to call you at any time if the school is asking them to do something they are not comfortable with - such as this...

  • No way! That is sick & twisted.

  • Never. Not even with me present. I cannot think of any reason to ever strip search a child.... if there is that big a problem at a school, then metal detectors and drug dogs can do all the alerting needed... 3 - even 2 strikes and you're out of that school for the rest of the year. I understand zero tolerance, but strip searches of students has got to be a violation of some kind of rights.

  • I understand this passed the House in 2006... and was amended to include that the search had to be reasonable and not intrusive.      I never trust what the media says just because they report something or FINALLY pick up on something.....  if there is newer information; someone please post the link. This is what I found preliminarily.

  • hell no

  • Never! Police can't even question a minor without a parent present. Why should a school official have the right to strip search a child without a parent or a police officer present? I would never agree to that and I would sue for damages.
