A state lawmaker introduced a bill that would allow school authorities to inspect students in order to protect the community.

Assemblywoman Claudia Agatón, of the Workers Party, said the proposal to modify Baja California’s Education Law would comply with protecting student human rights.

According to the legislator, the United Nations Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development says in its fourth goal that nations must provide inclusive, equal, and quality education for learning opportunities for all.

Agatón recalled the state has held the so-called Backpack Operations in order to inspect student belongings to find weapons and drugs.

The Mexican Supreme Court has ruled that these operations can be held if state legislatures approve proper legislation while protecting student rights. The bill was turned to a commission for study and approval.
