Parents were outraged last year after students were stip searched in a Kansas City school. Now some state lawmakers are trying to make sure it doesn't happen again. Matt Johnson has the story from the capital.
A newly adopted amendment to the Missouri legislature's yearly education bill will prohibit strip searches in Missouri schools. After a student lost a five dollar bill in a Kansas City classroom last year, teachers instructed students to conduct a search on their peers.
Rep. Sharon Brooks calls the searches outrageous.
Neither school employees nor students will be allowed to conduct strip searches when the amendment becomes law.
From the state capital, I'm Matt Johnson.
