Principal of Mid-Pacific Institute admits failure of student drug testing program

Of course, that's not what he said at the March 27, 2007 federal Office of National Drug Control Policy "2007 Regional Drug Testing Summit" held in Honolulu.

What he said was that they had found no positives among the students who volunteered to be tested, but nonetheless deemed this a success.

I wrote about this earlier and questioned why Mid-Pac administrators felt the school had a drug problem at a time when studies showed that drug use among students in Hawaii and nationally has been on the decline for years. More and more, students understand that drugs can be misused and are looking out for themselves.

The lack of any results in the program certainly validates that students are smarter than administrators at Mid-Pac.
