STAFF 10:07 PM

An official of the Department of Education is pushing of a mandatory drug test for students in public and private schools to rid the country's learning institutions of drug abuse.

But Super Radyo dzBB also reported Saturday that DepEd Assistant secretary Jesus Mateo had said limited funds is a problem, and that random drug tests could be done in the meantime.

Mandatory testing for all students entails a huge budget, the DepEd official said.

Also he said that random drug tests, coupled with the continuous anti-drug abuse education at schools, would be a good measure to keep students away from the drug menace.

Drug syndicate and small time pushers sometime uses students as drug couriers and runners because minors are not criminally liable under the juvenile justice law.
