All this week we’ve been looking at the issue of random drug testing in schools. Is it right to do this to students against their will or do the benefits of stopping a problem before it takes hold out weigh such considerations?
Well today’s graphic makes the clear argument against random drug testing in schools policies. Kids/students have rights to privacy and we need to respect them. If authority figures invade their privacy in this way they will be even less trusting and less inclined to co-operate with such figures in future.
In addition the use of such a blunt instrument criminalizes all and is not intelligence led. As such this graphic argues against the use of random drug testing of students but do you agree?
