Strip Searched During Exam: Canada High School Has Some Explaining To Do

With technology growing every day, many things are becoming a lot easier. Finding a nearby restaurant on your smartphone, for example. Or, cheating on a test. For that reason, a Canada high school issued statements to parents recently after school staff conducted a strip-search to find a missing cell phone.

The incident happened during Cap-Jeunesse High School’s final exams; each student had been instructed to hand over their phones to the teacher before class to prevent cheating. When one of the phones went missing, teachers thought it prudent to make the students strip down in an effort to find it.

“They put us in a small room,” an unnamed girl said. “(They said) ‘take off your bra, then raise your arms.’ They even tapped us on the back.”

The school board didn’t comment on whether the teachers responsible will face disciplinary action, but said an investigation is ongoing and released a statement.

“It was a disproportionate action under the circumstances,” spokeswoman Nadyne Brochu said. “These are not measures that are recommended by either the school or the school board. In the heat of the action, the decision seemed the best. Once officials heard what had happened, they immediately contacted the students’ parents to explain the situation.”

    all they had to do was line the students up and call that cell phone number to see where the ring was coming from

    Unfortunately, you often hear about things like this happening. Why on earth didn’t the teacher just call the police rather than doing something like that? I also wonder if any students refused to submit to it.
