<< The planet Earth apparently. There are many, living on some other
planet, who still believe that drug use is NOT going on in the schools. For
the good of the kids, SOMETHING has to be done to attempt to stop it. >>

I'll stop after this post because after all, drug use is not the subject of
the list, but random drug testing of students is a disgusting invasion of
privacy that goes completely beyond the reasonable: the lack of trust in
students that such a policy indicates is likely to be far-reaching and
extremely damaging.

It is possible to address the issue of drug use in schools without resorting
to such extreme measures. If a school really believes it has such a serious
drug problem, then there are probably other, deeper, issues that should be
addressed rather than putting students through such a degrading trial.
