Should schools be allowed to strip search students?

How would you react if your kid was stripped down to his underwear and searched at school?

That happened to a 10-year-old boy in North Carolina.

Justin Cox was order to strip down to his T-shirt and boxer shorts after several kids accused him of taking $20, according to wral.com .

The strip search turned up nothing.

Justin's mom is mad because she wasn't informed before the search took place and only found out when her boy came home upset.

The school district is standing behind the decision to do the search saying administrators were within their rights.

What do you think?

Was the school right to search Justin?

How would you react if this was your child?
