Are Students Protected From Unreasonable Search and Seizure?

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit on the behalf of a Mississippi middle school student. Richard Wade, a 12 year old student at Southaven Middle School, had his cell phone confiscated by the football coach and then viewed by the principal and Southaven police. The student was then suspended. The ACLU believes that, even on school property, students should be protected from unreasonable search and seizure.

What is your take on this issue? Are students protected on school property from this type of action? Let us know in the comments!
