"Unfortunately, sometimes some of our students make some bad decisions -- and that not only puts them at risk -- but puts others at risk and we’re looking at ways to curtail this,” said Chesterton High School Principal James Goetz.
Goetz said police would train chaperones to administer the tests. Goetz says the practice is legal. It might be, but it raises some constitutionality questions, specifically articles Four and Five protecting against unreasonable search and seizure and against self-incrimination.
Schools nationwide have tried the practice, sometimes accompanied by protests.
