Pennsylvania Middle School Student Sues District Over Drug Testing

The AP (3/22) reports that the ACLU has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Peach Bottom, Pennsylvania, middle school student "over a drug testing policy that's required if she wants to participate in choir and other activities." The ACLU says "the policy violates privacy rights under the state constitution and want a county judge to prevent the Solanco School District from enforcing it. The lawsuit says the Peach Bottom sixth-grader at Swift Middle School was removed from the orchestra and chorus, and can't participate in athletic or academic teams, because she won't consent to having her urine screened on a random basis by school officials."
