Drug Test for Tuition-Free Community College in West Virginia

Inside Higher Education reports that a new tuition-free community college policy in West Virginia will require successfully completing a drug test as one of its eligibility requirements. From Inside Higher Education: "the reasoning behind the drug testing requirement was that West Virginia Invests is meant to be a program preparing students for the workforce, where they'll likely have to take drug tests anyway." Drug testing as a requirement to participate in government-funded programs has occurred outside the higher education contexts in some states (e.g. to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). This practice has been controversial and the subject of lawsuits, Inside Higher Education reports.
