Wisconsin lawmakers are looking to update the rules for strip searching students in the state’s schools.
The State Assembly is scheduled to vote today on a new plan that would expand strip searches to include stripping students down to their underwear. The proposal would also make it clear just when someone can order a student to take their clothes off. The changes come after a superintendent near Green Bay ordered a group of high school girls to strip down to their underwear as part of a vape cartridge search. Prosecutors weren’t allowed to charge the superintendent because Wisconsin law didn’t cover underwear searches in school.
