Another school district drug testing students

Add the West Platte School District to the number of those that are drug testing students who participate in extracurricular activities.

While I fully understand and sympathize with board members, school officials, and parents whose hearts are in the right place with this effort to deal with society's drug problems, this invasion of personal privacy is not the route to go. It is another cheap fix that ultimately results in many students not participating in the very activities that might pull them away from using drugs.
