Giving them the right to search students - in some if not all cases strip searches - is just a throughly bad idea. Can you imagine your art teacher or janitor having the right to search you?

There has got to be some limits.

That ties in with what I was saying that public schools are becoming more and more like prisons and detention centers then like an education facility.

There also seems to be a big attack on homeschoolers aswell. The system doesn't seem to like them very much.
