No (Sam Levy)

High school athletes are not paid for their participation in athletics. Most of them do not receive scholarships that pay for their education. Athletics are used to help children grow, learn leadership qualities, and stay in shape. If an athlete is a professional and plays a sport to feed his or her family, then he or she needs to make sure they are at the top of their game, which requires staying away from drugs. In high school, however, most athletes will not move on to the next level. Drug tests are an invasion of privacy, and should never be given to students who use sports as recreational activities.

Yes (Wilson Witherspoon)

High school is a time for student-athletes not only to compete, but to grow and learn. One of the most significant and best preventative measures a school can take is to drug test its athletes. Doing so teaches the lesson early โ€“ and what is school for if not teaching lessons โ€“ that student-athletes must be held responsible for their actions. These tests would help schools to do their jobs โ€“ to instruct and set their student bodies on the right path, academically and athletically.
