haven't they got better things to discuss, like the Legislature taking away local control of schools? I also note that they aren't talking about testing for performance enhancing drugs, which might actually be good for the kids and the sports.
The ACLU cited a 2007 opinion from Tennessee Attorney General Robert E. Cooper Jr.
“The controlling statute ... allows drug testing of a student only when there are reasonable indications to the principal that the student may have used or may be under the influence of drugs,” Cooper opined. “Random drug testing violates that statute.”
... Miller suggested removing the opt-out clause and seeing what happens.
“Maybe like you say, we just do it, and then let someone challenge us if they choose,” Director of Schools Gary Aytes said.
