Should All Students Have Mandatory Drug Testing?
Do you think Junior and Senior High students should be subjected to mandatory drug testing? A Florida school thinks so. Lake Highland Preparatory School in Orlando, Florida recently announced a new drug-testing program that calls for the drug screening of all students, grades seven through 12.They will start the screening in the fall semester of the 2013-2014 school year. Each student will provide a small hair sample that will be tested for 18 different narcotics. The school administrators say they don’t currently have a drug problem at their school. They are using this as a preventative measure.
What do you think? LHP is a private school in Florida. Is this practice something that Public schools should enforce as well? What would you do if your child’s school required that your child be drug tested? Take my Poll below and tell me what you think.
