From the assault by drug warriors, fear-mongers, and control freaks on students’ privacy rights, kids are under attack. Part One lays a foundation for understanding current search policies in schools by describing and critiquing their legal precedents as well as the socio-cultural climate.

Part Two examines five types of searches conducted at schools across America.

Part Three focuses on the impact of school search policies. The final chapter hypothesizes why, in light of all the negatives, we are increasingly using intrusive policies in schools.
