Should drug testing continue?

The Supreme Court, limiting drug testing of students, refused Monday to allow a school district to test all those who violate its disciplinary rules. 
The Constitution's 4th Amendment protects students, as well as adults, from unreasonable searches by public officials, the ruling stressed. Is drug testing a violation of the 4th Amendment?

Drug testing and the fourth amendment
The fourth amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides protection from unreasonable search and seizure of our homes, property and person. Is not a search of our urine, blood or hair a search of something even more private than our house, our car or our clothing? Drug testing without evidence of possible drug use is clearly unconstitutional. Hopefully the Supreme Court or our lawmakers will eventually realize this.
