Students are not protected by the 4th amendment. Nor should they be.
Of course they should be protected by the 4th Amendment.
A teacher is not a LEO, nor do they have training under due process of probable cause.
Say a student has a naked pic of themselves on their phone. Why should the teacher be allowed to see it?
If for no other reason, students should learn to stand up against government, and not simply bend over for them.edit on 26-11-2010 by BigTimeCheater because: (no reason given)

I wasn't aware saying that students SHOULD be protected by the 4th amendment is the same as saying students ARE protected by the 4th amendment.
But hey, I guess because a law exists, it's okay right? Just like the patriot act, drug laws, all those executive orders that give the president power whenever he wishes...
This is all okay. Don't question it. Because the court or some authority figure say so and made it so, it is so and can not nor should not be changed. Right?
By the way, whats your beef with our schools anyways? Apparently, by your example, they do a great job!
I mean, they're an institutionalized set of prisons meant to curtail thought into little designed, easily controlled pens, following the authority figures from within. It's perfect for our authority!
And also take a look at how you suck at reading! I mean, it's a perfect win-win; subject kids to thoughtless societal development in the guise of learning while actually not learning a god damn thing!

Sorry but this one I agree with..
Schools are for learning, not chatting with mates on facebook or twitter..
Simple answer is, turn off your phone in class and learn instead..

Not only should the phones be confiscated, if possessed in prohibited areas, but more than one violation should result in having their little butts busted.
I was replying to "danbones," who said that students are protected by the 4th amendment.

anyone who trusts teachers "if you can't do teach"
aught to consider who taught the sheeple we have today to be sheeple...
aught Noun: The digit 0; zero.
ought /ôt/Verb 1. Used to indicate duty or correctness, typically when criticizing someone's actions: "they ought to respect the law".
There are some things that even spell check cannot teach
sheeple indeed.edit on 26-11-2010 by dr_strangecraft because: emphasis was needed

On Topic: It seems some believe that because an individual is not of a certain age, they aren't afforded the same fundamental right to privacy as those of an age they deem it so.
