Four students at a Montreal high school say they were forced to lower their pants, revealing their underwear, as part of a search organized by staff to see if the boys were concealing vaping products.

Refuse the search get suspended , get searched find vape pen get suspended. Since when are staff members allowed to pull strip searches? Searching a backpack or desk is one thing but asking to remove clothing is a charter violation.

Of course the ministry of education sides with these messed up teachers.

What would have happened if female students were subjected to the same process?

A mon opinion, si c'est assez grave pour vouloir chercher sous les vêtements, c'est assez grave pour appeler la police et les parents a la place. Si c'est pas assez grave pour appeler la police ou les parents, laissez tomber.

Si un prof demandait a un de mes enfants de baisser ses cullotes, je lui collerait tellement de poursuites que ses descendants auraient besoin d'un avocat.

It should be so simple to keep students in class, and to not coercively strip them. Easy even.Their drug policy (which may be federally or provincially imposed) is archaic, punitive and carceral, and is not designed to keep students in schooling, but to intimidate, humiliate, and abuse students; it does nothing to prevent drug use, educate about drug use, or humanise drug users.

if you are making students strip at school, that is sexual harassment; these kids should take legal action, this was totally unwarranted.

Not for a weapons search. Not for a drugs search. But for vapes. Insane.

When I was in high school a fee decades ago all the students would smlle cigarettes on the steps of the school at every break and it was fine.

Times have changed but I don't know if this is better.
