Put "our" LEVY money to good use, mandatory drug testing for all school employees.

There is an ongoing dispute about whether coaches should have to be teachers. Its true that many non teachers have shown to be good coaches but the fact is that teachers have a great deal of training (ongoing)in how to deal with children, to see problems and to use coaching as a teaeching moment. When you have nonteachers filing coaching positions the school lacks a certain amount of control and the kids are being "taught" by someone who may have views that are negative to healthy development. Allison is not a teacher, she is a nonfaculty coach, who played there and was a great player. But clearly had a lot of problems. More difficult to hide ****** addiction if you are on the faculty, there everyday, undergoing evaluations and professional interviews with administrators. This girl shows up after school, works with kids and then is gone, as are many non teaching coaches. Sports are part of school, part of education thats why people want trained educators in those positio

Let me amend something, Allison is a substitute teacher meaning that she does sometimes teach and holds a certificate, which ironically means that she would have priority over a non teaching coach for that position. It appears that she is a more a coach than actually seeking sub time in the classroom. Wonder how long it will be before we are told that she hurt her back and became addicted by someone else's doing and is the victim in this matter. Seems like that comes up when we are shocked to learn that someone other than a dreg is dealing drugs.

Illegal drug trade is a multi-billion dollar business in the US. We are world leaders in illegal drug use and we spend more tax dollars to "combat" the illegal drug trade than any other country, interestingly!!!

For some reason we have this idea that Cheech-n-Chong will be on the street corner selling drugs! The truth is that drug pushers and users are amongst you every day....

Triton, Maybe they'll use the excuse of no teaching jobs opening up for "our" young people or low teaching salaries, also. My guess is once an "addict" is arrested, they give up their source pretty quickly......I'm guessing Renzella can't wait for the next couple months to get over with.

It's a double edged sword. WV screwed itself when it comes to good teachers. If we drug test them, we lose A LOT of them. Then you have to find replacements but who wants to come teach in WV and get paid beans? If I had to teach some of your kids, I'd light up a joint every now and again too!

A mere 'first step' in Rover's cure:

Locker 'er up in solitaire and then probe her orifices three times a day for a month for drug contraband and maybe a missing Ford truck!

Teacher's pay????? Pay them more when you can get rid of the BAD ONES like every other "professional" job. Check out the houses the teachers live in in Marshall County compared to others

We reap what we sow. Teachers and admin. types have been protected for too long. When the talk of under paid, they have to consider the cost of living is less than the high cost states being compared with. There again, the old story about figures. Good idea to use levi funds to test "ALL" BOE Employees.

I agree that the EXTRA levy money should be used to drug test all Marshall County Schools employees. These employees are with our children every day and a lot of them are not good role models. I also think the drug task force should go in to the schools unannounced and do a drug bust without principals and staff knowing ahead of time.

coffee-Dont think it said she was selling to students, but....This is exactly why I am not in favor of testing those on welfare, would much rather test those that have some element of control in our society, judges, drs, nurses, teacher , lawyers, coaches, etc. These people have some control over our future or our childrens future/well being. It is different today. idlietoknow-like your comment. However wasnt a joint she had. Pretty serious. There are many people on prescribed narcotics and taking them as directed and functioning in their jobs very well. They have a tolerance to them. This is what happens when insurance dictates what drs can do. Tests, physical therapy, surgery all takes years to get to after an injury, by then the patient has developed a tolerance to the medications-and often the options are too late. We are an aging population here, no wonder the % is so high. Test everyone. No prescription, no for what their on, no work.

Bloomin, I'm not one to defend insurance companies, but aren't unethical pill pushing doctors a good reason for them to dictate what doctors prescribe? Kind of a vicious circle anyway you look at it.... I do agree with your testing govt employees who deal with other people's lives before welfare recipients.... Also Miss Addison has a 22 year old boyfriend. It would just be a matter of time before she started supplying recent HS graduates or lower. Addicts always need money.

if true, what is chance the coach would rat on a student they discovered fooling with drugs ?

school and sports don't have to share the same space. the exercise reasoning doesn't cut it as evidenced by 68% graduates 4 feet 7 inches size 48 and 400 lbs.

There is an ongoing dispute about whether illegals are simply strangers being picked on by rules and laws.

Dino-I agree its a vicious cycle. If you go to dr. with injury, might do basic x-ray and give muscle relaxer or pain meds , etc. If pain or swelling persists, often physical therapy round before ct scan. Then more pain meds etc before specialist and MRI. This process can take over a year while awaiting pre approvals from insurance company. During which time, often pain meds, plenty of time to get addicted. Seen it too often. Dr is following insurance guidelines. Not defending drs who over prescribe, but do understand that too often their choice is dictated my insurance.
