School-Based Random Drug Testing
Did you know?
- The Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of school drug testing twice. The second ruling expanded drug testing policies to include all students involved in extracurricular activities. The court’s decision was based on the belief that the safety gained by reducing substance abuse outweighed the infringement on students’ privacy.
- Random drug testing advocates believe the benefits are twofold: First, the potential for testing may discourage some students from experimenting with drugs at all. Second, if a student does test positive their drug use can be identified early, making treatment more successful.
- Students’ drug use doesn’t just affect them. Their behavior can negatively affect the teaching environment, compromising the teacher’s effectiveness and other students’ ability to learn. An athlete using drugs can affect his or her entire team, which has a ripple effect through the school and the community itself .
