The school board of valdez wishes to implement a policy that will drug test 5% of the student athletes randomly weekly, I am asking the people of valdez to stand up and JUST SAY NO.
There have been many reports put out stating statistically that drug testing is not effective. recently a report was put out taking a poll of over 70,000 students from almost 900 schools, the report stated that only about 19% of those schools had drug testing in place but however did not really show a difference in drug use at the school - http://classroom.synonym.com/arguments-against-drug-testing-schools-4899.html.
Not only is this policy immoral and unfair to the students of valdez but it does not work, In the state of alaska between the years of 2000-2011 drug offenses have incready by 34.3% that is a huge increased. Obviously we need to do something else, forcing students into submission is not the way to go.
