School is a safe environment for kids to learn so they can get a future. What if their future ended because of the weapons and drugs in the lockers?

Think you'll like prison any better,'cause that's where you're headed if you drop out.

Maybe it is time for you to grow up and quit whining.

Or not.

Looks like you decided to keep whining.

My guess?

You are not working your way through college; someone ELSE is paying the freight for you.

If so, that makes you a miserable ingrate.

What a waste of tuition and other expenses.

I do not believe in spying on students or searches of their lockers ! This is America ! And NOT the People's Republic of China !

Honestly i am still in middle school....and i think it is a good idea because what if someone has drugs then you can help them stop doing them or take weapons away from students by finding them and mabe u will be saving a life of a student or teacher....if they had done this at columbine then maybe 15 people would not be dead right now!!!! I only disagree with it in the part of how it invades privacy and that is all!:)

I'm for the searches, and also drug tests, but I'd include the teachers and staff taking drug tests also, along with random UNANNOUNCED searches of their belongings. When Campbell school had a drug problem in the early ninties, who were the drug dealers? The security staff. It was hushed up, of course, much like Kahuku's cheating on the football staff. Everyone looks the other way, but expect the kids to be perfect.

I have four kids in the Waianae schools. I asked them how they felt about their lockers and stuff being searched and they said they don't care.

I think the only people that object to being searched come from homes where the parents are afraid of what a search might lead to, like a search warrant served on THEM. I know a search of my neighbor's 12 year old would lead the cops to about 5 drug dealers that this kid has to live around.
