Police investigating after 10 students strip-searched
LA MARQUE, Texas Police in Texas are investigating why ten students at an award-winning charter school were strip searched while officials looked for a missing ten-dollar bill.
The principal of the Mainland Preparatory Academy says the eleven- and 12-year-olds were separated by gender and told to strip to their underwear. The money wasn't found.
At least one parent filed a police complaint, and pulled her four children out of the school 40 miles southeast of Houston.
The principal defended the action, saying it's been done before and may be done again. She says nobody objected to it -- because they all wanted to clear their name.
Police say the search wasn't against the law, but investigators want to see if it was done legally.
I'd be getting up close and personal with a few admin folks if ANYONE in the school district tried that shit with one of my kids.
