Drug testing in the Public Schools

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:49 pm

This week in the St.Louis papers news has been amuck with the issue of drug testing on public high school students in the Francis Howell School District. At issue is that the testing is mandatory (albeit random) for anyone involved in extra-curriculars, or who chooses to park on campus. If you take the bus and do not participate in sports or clubs then your exempt from the testing. On one hand you have the issue of “big brother” looking over everyone’s shoulder, vs. the reality that illigeal drugs are still illigeal drugs. Call it the Barry Bonds effect, but I think that the day has come to require such testing.
