Random drug testing for students


The government will commence its random drug testing among high school and college students on February 2. I guess this action rooted on the issues of “Alabang Boys” (as how PDEA tagged this particular operation), last year’s case of a student caught selling drugs inside a renowned school and for sure on the fact that the issue on drugs is still unsolved and unfortunately even reached the schools, universities and bars in the metropolis.

As a mother to 2 kids, I feel positive about this random drug testing action by the government. Though my kids are still young, aged 8 and 4, I keep on educating them those realities about life aside from independence. At times when kids left home, I pray that they will return home safely and that nothing bad will happen to them while in school. Making friends is part of their school lives but to some kids this particular action is quite hard to deal with. At some point, kids tend to follow instructions from other kids even knowing that such thing is bad or may harm them.

This random drug testing issue is a big help to parents who are unable to know the happenings of their kids at school. The government and its agencies concerned on the other hand must protect the welfare of the kids in the performance of this testing like the issues of confidentiality, bribery, and other concerns to ensure the success of this action and for better chance of getting kids stay out of drugs.
