I know alot of you have children, and so I was interested in what you thought about this debate. I know when I went to school, the school did random searches of any locker thought to have anything illegal or harmful to other students. It wasn't a debate back then, it's just how it was.
It is different today.
On one hand:
Lockers are school property; students are merely allowed to use them as they do with sports equipment, library books, school computers, etc. Lockers can be taken back without notice, for example if they are vandalised or become smelly with rotting food. Students are or should be told that schools have the right to search their lockers - it is a part of being in a school community where you have to accept its rules and responsibilities.
On the other hand:
A sense of alienation and isolation in the school environment has been at the forefront of the rise of psychological problems amongst students – resulting in tragedies like Columbine. Denying students the security of a secure anchor in this environment, a known reference point without risk of removal or meddling, means they are more likely to be adrift and insecure.
Anythoughts on this ??
Do schools have the right to search students lockers?
