POLL: Manasquan Schools Could Re-Open Drug Testing: Do You Agree?

Do you agree? Please let us know in the poll or in the comments.

The Manasquan Board of Education voted 7-2 last week to grant authority to form a drug-testing committee, and for the school’s administration to reopen the suspended, controversial random drug testing policy for review.

School administrations are selecting a committee to discuss random drug testing at Manasquan High School, according to The Coast Star.

The Coast Star quoted board member Patricia Walsh as saying that a vote against forming the committee was a vote against random drug testing.

Do you agree? Please let us know in the poll or in the comments.

May also just make some people money. Kids gave the board a petition with over 700 signatures and no one knows where it is. Let's hope this time they listen to the ones it effects. It would be great to hear from kids who graduated a few years ago. I'm sure people on the board with less then stellar pasts would agree a mistake shouldn't label you for life.

So what ?? Take the $$ from someplace. Oh the board can't find savings from the schools large budget? Well don't make the mistake......Stay clean...No copies of petition??? Maybe the kids need a lesson in retaining copies of taxes, paid bills, dr. visits, etc?.

John Dillmar, F You. You just pee in the bottle. The schools have enough power. This is just another money grabber for someone. The educators of today and those clowns who are running the system should be a shame of what they do and get away with. Total corruption in their little world. They help their own and a few picks of their choice that really has nothing to do with deserve to be recognized. Most of them are no darn good that have a great act. I am sick of hearing how they aren't paid that much while they are traveling the country abroad and to the islands.They have a great gig going that they want to continue that everyone wants to stop.
