The kids assigned to the alternative school made their own poor life choices that put them there. Most continue to do so. If there are no consequences associated with those poor life choices, such as reduced expectation of privacy and restriction of rights, then they will continue to make those poor life choices - utimately progressing to crimes that infringe on the rights of others. These kids are one step away from entering the juvenile justice system - you think they will have privacy and rights while they're locked up? I think not. I'm glad this case went to the Supreme Court, since the final ruling will set precedent, and hopefully will give the alternative schools the ability to jerk a knot in these kids. Their parents should be next.
