To all who seem to take a perverse pleasure in bashing the south/rural...
Here's some more ammo for ya:

"LA MARQUE, Texas - Ten students between the ages of 11 and 12 were strip-searched as officials at their charter school tried to find a missing $10 bill."

2. I had to do that in high school in Indiana.
Except it was the principal and his assistants doing the search. I refused to let them touch me or lift up my shirt and was immediately accused of taking the $20 bill. They threatened to suspend me, but I was smart enough to tell them that I was calling my parent's attorney as soon as I got home (even though I really don't have one). Eventually I got away with nothing but a little harassment for not submitting to a search.

5. Notice it was a charter school. No accountability breeds this kind of
abuse. Say NO to charter schools. They are just a stepping stone for the religious right to get their hands on our taxpayer money to finance their primitive religious schools and institutions.
