First off you shouldn't have any thing bad to hid in the first place second I do believe in student rights but I doubt the Principle is just looking for no reason he probably has some suspicion for looking into your book bag so to answer your question he does have a right as long as he has a suspicion.

I am right. It is against the fourth amendment of the Constitution. This states that you need permission to search book bags and locker.

Dan, the fourth amendment is against unreasonable searches and seizures.

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

What you're arguing about is whether the principal has valid reason.
