Reader responses from the NYT on school drug testing. I’m assuming that the paper made an attempt to keep the published letters representative of all that they received. I’m genuinely surprised at the number of responses that are supportive of testing. I support testing for cause, but random testing troubles me. Random or limited, my biggest concern is what we do with kids who test positive. Locally, there simply isn’t help for them.
