In his recent state of the union speech, President Bush proposed a plan that would allocate $23 million dollars of government funds to schools that wished to implement drug testing. For a long time, compulsory education has extended itself far beyond simply teaching math, reading, and other such things, and has begun to intrude on the personal affairs of students. Drug testing is one extreme example of the schools invading young peoples privacy. In his speech Bush said that drug testing was not meant to punish students, but to help them. This protectionist reasoning shows a complete lack of respect for Youth Rights.
