I wouldn't be sending my kid to this school.....outrageous....
Testing of school administration and board members should be mandantory before anyone tests my child.
“I wouldn’t be sending my kid to this school..”
I wouldn’t either. Granted, this is a private school so if they make the decision that everyone shaves off one eyebrow... the parents have to allow it or leave. That being said, schools have become very intrusive into becoming “the parent”. They feel entitled to intruding into the parent/child relationship.. usually without merit. Now, if they saw some kid acting like they were on drugs then notify the parents of their suspicion. Check lockers, check backpacks. However, to pull hair out of a child’s head to check for the possibility of drug use.. with no other suspicion other than it is a kid.. is beyond intrusive to me. What happens if there is a false positive? What happens if the child did take a tylenol #3 with a doctor’s script? This kind of info will get out and damage the reputation of the kid... As stated, I wouldn’t send my child to any private school that would allow such an intrusive search. IMHO.
Uh.... in most public schools, IIRC, you must have a complete physical before you can enlist in a sport. Is that an 'invasion of privacy' ?
