Bugger all drugs and dangerous goods – what’s wrong with today’s kids?

By johnboy 7 May 2009 26

The Canberra Times reports that there were 26 cases of students found with illegal drugs in public schools last year (no mention of the teachers), and just five cases of dangerous items (sharpened rulers etc).

This really is unnacceptable. What’s wrong with the kids of today? There should be far more of this stuff going around.

Or do these statistics indicate there’s not a lot of looking for trouble going on?

What’s Your opinion?

bd84, I actually work with teenagers so I know for a fact it’s not a realistic number, hence the sarcasm.

Gee, it must have been a slow year……

Only 26 times they actually found them and the school reported it. You could add a couple of zeros to the end to get a more realistic estimate.

Valid point re: the Department, mono.
But the stats don’t look at drug use _at school, on school grounds_.

I know. But I included these figures to suggest undetected drug use at school might be a fair bit higher than 26 cases a year.

I hope someone remembers these statistics for use the next time some bozo goes on another ‘the youth of today are all evil’ rant.
