Sure — This Makes Sense

The Freehold Regional High School District, which runs six schools in Monmouth County, N.J., has announced it’s working with an “addiction specialist” to review its policies and procedures after a drug incident. The school has warned that it may institute random drug searches of students. “All of us, our heads are not in the sand on this issue,” said Nicole Hazel, the district’s chief academic officer. “As a whole, we are addressing the matter.” And what was the incident that led to every student being a drug suspect? A school staffer — an assistant baseball coach — was arrested in a drug sweep in another county. His job is on hold pending the results of legal proceedings. (RC/Asbury Park Press) ...School staff: innocent until proven guilty. Students: guilty until proven innocent.
