Should schools conduct random drug testing?

Hello, I believe that drug testing in schools should not be allowed to occur. In a national study by the University of Chicago, 76,000 students were surveyed and there was no correlation between the drug use of students that went to schools that conducted drug testing and those that did not. Based on this study and many many more, drug testing is simply not an efficient deterrent. Next, drug testing is inaccurate. Based on several statistics, (that I will name if necessary), drug tests can bri...

Should Black History be a Mandatory Standard in K-12 Education ?

Some people are asking: How can the Philadelphia public school system mandate teaching African and African American history? But others of us are asking: How have school officials justified not teaching it in a school district where nearly two-thirds of all students are African American? America is so diverse that we should be teaching the stories of all its people, whether it is Greco-Roman history, including Greek mythology; Ireland's potato famine; the exodus of Eastern Europeans to Americ...
