    I don’t understand how a teacher was even hired if there were drugs involved. I thought the hiring system for teachers was already really strict. Doesn’t it take months of screening and background checks before a person is cleared to work in the education system? I’m sure the education system even goes above what a Professional Employer Organization does for employment screening. Maybe teachers should go through random drug testing as well while they are employed to make sure that students are constantly safe in the classrooms.
