Stefkovich, Jacqueline A.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v2 n3 p229-41 Jul 1996
In recent years, public school students have been searched with metal detectors and occasionally sniffed by dogs or strip searched. Their lockers and bookbags have been searched, and their urine has been tested for drugs--all in the name of school safety. This article explores the legal ramifications of such searches and calls for a critical analysis of these practices. (44 references) (MLH)
