This one gets my libertarian hackles up. The Supreme Court ruled that random drug tests are permissible for students participating in extracurricular activities. Whatever happened to the 4th Amendment? In what is possibly a sign of the Apocalypse, I find myself on the same side as the NEA:

The National Education Association opposes testing when there is no suspicion.
“When we have situations where [tests] are done in a suspicionless situation, we believe that is an invasion of privacy,” said NEA President Bob Chase. “If there is suspicion of drug use, that is quite another story, but in this case it was not.”
