  • Not without Consent!

    As a student, it is our constitutional right to have the same rights as that of the adults. Having school officials search students is absurd If there was probable cause to search a student then they should wait until the parent/guardian arrives. To give consent to school officials to search there child.

  • Its bullshit and a violation of privacy

    Just dont its realllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll more shit j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j j

  • Students have the same rights inside of school as they have outside of school

    Students have the right to their privacy. They shouldn't be searched unless you have reasonable cause. You should notify the parents first before searching them or their property. Students should be treated just as adults when it comes to searching them and/or their properties. Schools should have a warrant to search students!

  • I see no age restriction in the Bill of Rights.

    I am coming from this from a United States' citizen's point of view.

    There are certain things that trump the need for school officials to feel like they are in control of their domains, such as the Constitution. Being a government agency for the most part, they are bound by this document, and in it is the right for citizens to be secure in their persons. There exists a direct protection against unjust search and seizure.

    As minors are required by law to attend school, one cannot argue that there is an implied consent in effect when they enter the school building. And, even if there were, such statutes apply to law enforcement officials, which school personal and administrators are most certainly not.

    My point really comes down to this:

    If a parent needs to be present for a minor to be questioned by law enforcement in many cases, then school administrators have no right to actively search students.

  • NO! A school official should not be allowed to search a student.

    I feel if there is a need to search a student, they should be detained until a parent arrives. You have to have a warrant to search an adult and I think a child should have the same respect. It is very degrading and it invades their privacy. Call the parents and have them search their child.

  • Students should have the same rights as adult citizens

    The idea that in school a student has few rights seems contradictory to what the Constitution says about due process. Students are citizens too and they should be treated like adult citizens, if the school wants to search a student's possessions they need a search warrant to do so. Besides, so many students have been falsely accused of something and have had their privacy violated or have had a possession damaged due to poor information.

  • Not At All

    School officials should not be allowed to search students. It is a violation of privacy and completely wrong in my opinion. If there is a justifiable reason to search a student, then a school official should call a cop or someone else to handle the situation and search the student.
