A ban on strip searches for kids in Wisconsin schools is now on its way to Governor Evers’ desk.
The State Assembly last week approved a proposal that rewrites the rules for school officials who want to strip search students. The rewrite comes after a superintendent near Green Bay stripped a handful of high schools down to their bras and underwear to look for a vape cartridge. Prosecutors couldn’t charge the superintendent because the current state law doesn’t cover those kinds of strip searches. The new law would. The plan got votes from both Republicans and Democrats, but the governor has not specifically said what he plans to do with it.
