Should there be zero tolerance for drugs in school?

  • Schools Should Be Drug Free

    Schools should be drug free places. There is no reason for students to have drugs at school, and the schools should maintain a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drug use. To do otherwise would be creating an environment more dangerous and distracting for children simply trying to be students.

  • School is no place for drugs and alcohol, much like the workplace.

    If a kid is in possession of drugs or alcohol on school grounds, its either underage drinking/drug use (illegal under the law) or solicitation of drugs and alcohol to minors (illegal under the law). I am not condoning throwing them in jail and giving them a criminal record, but disciplinary actions ought to be taken and become more serious with repeated offenders (repeated offenses are grounds for arrest)

  • Yes there should be zero tolerance.

    Yes there should be zero tolerance in schools when it comes to drugs. As it can cause violent outburst and problems with students interacting with each other it should be banned. By keeping it at zero tolerance you reduce the chance of drug sales to minors, and wars starting amongst children.

  • Will send the child down a bad path

    No! A 0 tolerance policy for drugs would do more harm than good. A blanket zero tolerance drug policy does not allow for extraneous circumstances. Such a policy would have life long effects on people who are not old or mature enough to make thought out decisions. Expelling students for drugs would likely send them into a path leading to more drugs and gang related activities and maybe homelessness and poverty

  • Zero tolerance policies are NEVER a good idea.

    They never allow for any flexibility based upon the individual situation, and they do not do anything to fix drug problems. Expelling a student for possession of drugs under all circumstances may send a student down a bad path that they would have otherwise never travelled down. It's like being arrested and jailed for drug possession.

  • No, a zero tolerance policy for drugs is harmful to students.

    No, a zero tolerance policy for drugs would do more harm than good. A blanket zero tolerance drug policy does not allow for extraneous circumstances. Such a policy would have life long effects on people who are not old or mature enough to make thought out decisions. Expelling students for drugs would likely send them into a path leading to more drugs and gang related activities and possibly homelessness and poverty.
