Texas district ends random drug testing of students

Oct. 19, 2010
San Marcos administrators decide the program costs too much

From The Austin American-Statesman: Other school systems are just beginning to randomly test students for drug use, but the San Marcos (Texas) district has decided after testing for six years that the results aren't worth the cost. District officials have decided to abandon the program, which in 2004 began random drug testing of students in extracurricular activities. Since then, five of the 2,880 students tested were found positive for drug use.
