Kansas City: Rockhurst High School will test all students for drugs

Program is believed to be first in KC area. Hair samples will detect drug use and evidence of binge drinking.

Beginning in the fall of 2013, every student at Rockhurst High School will be tested at least once a year for drug and alcohol use.

Its a huge shift, Principal Greg Harkness said Thursday. Its an unprecedented step among Kansas City area schools.

But its one we need to do, he said.

Not because the private Jesuit school has any extraordinary drug and alcohol abuse problems, Harkness said.

But because the school wants to help its students take a stand against illegal substances, and aid those at risk of abuse.

1. Just tack it on to their tuition.

I know that it is a private school, but the police state mentality has to go.

4. well, it is for their "own good"

and it makes it a whole lot easier to get them to give up those other pesky things in the Bill of Rights.

I think it's GREAT. ...............................................AS LONG AS THEY DON'T HAVE TO GIVE UP THEIR GUNS.
