FreedomTruth: Why would you NOT want to drug test school employees? Pre-employment screenings are not to test for impairment but for drug use. We want to protect our schools from hiring individuals who abuse drugs. There should be zero tolerance for drug use in our schools.

The majority of fortune 500 companies conduct pre-employment background checks and drug testing. Use in the work place costs employers $100 billion dollars per year due to lost work time, health care expenses, and compensation to workers.

FreedomTruth "What a person does on their own time, should not be a concern of yours, or anyone else’s…."

When you work at a job where you are responsible for the lives of others it becomes everyone's concern.

Thank you to Freedom Truth for the most eloquent, informed, and watertight argument against such an invasion of privacy.

The rest of you best study up for your opinions are outdated and misinformed. May those who will judge you be not nearly so harsh as the judgement you levy.

So if the bus driver gets zonked out on drugs "before coming to work" and then he/she picks up your child, what do you say to that Freedom? After all, that drug usage was on his/her own time!!!

I would expect a reply like "We were talking about other people, not our bus driver"!!!

Any comment bunkpatrol concerning Freedom's "eloquent" reply?
