A North Texas school district is investigating after about two dozen elementary students had to pull their pants down when feces were found on a gym floor.We have a law about this in California. You have to wonder what exactly precipitated this being added to education code:
A parent says the children in Gustine were forced to expose their underwear for inspection...
Superintendent Ken Baugh says he does not condone the search and that partially strip-searching students went too far. He says the district is investigating.
Section 49050: No school employee shall conduct a search that involves:
(a) Conducting a body cavity search of a pupil manually or with an instrument.
(b) Removing or arranging any or all of the clothing of a pupil to permit a visual inspection of the underclothing, breast, buttocks, or genitalia of the pupil.
