I heard about a school wanting to test the younger kids in the junior high at random. I do not, its unconstitutional. The student who tested positve for a drugs will be put in their permanent file at school. The kid will have a drug charge all his life. Plus what gives the school a right to be able to this. Apparently they think kids didn't any rights .

My question is where exactly are school districts going to get the money to do this? They are laying off teachers and closing schools in some areas of the country. How about the schools that ask parents to supply them with toilet paper? Are parents going to be asked to send money so that the administration can buy drug tests? And why exactly are these needed? If there are children that are caught bringing drugs to school, they should be suspended and then expelled if they repeat their behavior. I think it sounds like a huge waste of time and money. Involve parents in the kids' lives and hold people accountable. A junior high student needs a parent to hold them accountable, not our schools / administrators.

It definitely doesn't surprise me to hear this. look at everything that is going on in the country. If it was a mandated thing I would have to be standing right there making sure the school wasn't doing anything fishy but I imagine if this law passed it would be done in the school nurse's office. They already give kids shots at school and eye/hearing exams so this isn't really surprising.The reality is that too many parents work during the day and so there wouldn't be a way to just pull kids out of school and home school. If they made it law in your state or across the whole country you'd pretty much have to just deal with it. Anyways, I doubt it will get passed anytime soon but it will probably be discussed for quite a while. And yes I think its a waste of money and stupid.
