School Heads Push For Mandatory Drug Testing In Schools

School heads push for mandatory drug testing in schools.
The school principals also reanimated calls for mandatory drug testing in schools.
This proposal, which has been shelved several times, seeks to address rising cases of drug and substance use among students, which has been identified as one of the causes of unrest in educational institutions, according to headteachers.
“There would be a need for rules to be enacted that would give a correct legal way of doing the testing so that we parents and schools can get informed of any instances of drug abuse among students.
"It would definitely need two parties present, the school and the parents because if the school did it alone in the absence of the parents then the parent would definitely raise a concern and vice versa,” Kahi explained.
According to Kahi, in order for the proposal to be implemented, both parents and teachers must be involved in the process of developing guidelines that will ensure comprehensive implementation.
“If we are all to be trusted, laws put in place and the tests done in specified government institutions which can give us credible results, then all the parties involved should be able to accept the results.
"The tests will aid in providing information to schools on whether their students are involved in drugs and the necessary containment measures to be taken in order to dissuade the students from the use of drugs.
