This was a definite misuse of the new law, and I hope that
there have been consequences for these acts. For this ruling
to work efficiently, I think that there must be certain revisions
that must be put in place.
Before the use of this new law becomes entirely out of control,
specific boundaries must be made. For instance, teachers now
have the right to search lockers, backpacks and persons, if they
have reason to believe that the persons are guilty. This does
not mean that if some money goes
missing, teachers then search everyone in the class. That would
be like if something went missing from a department store, and
everyone had to be "strip searched" before they were
allowed to leave.
Students also need to be informed of this ruling so that they
know what to expect, and perhaps
this alone will be enough to cause a decrease in problems at
school. We also have to remember that some teachers and administrators
simply can't handle having this much power, and they forget that
with power comes responsibility.
I think that before this ruling causes chaos and many lawsuits,
the Supreme Court should sit down and take another look at revising
