Pre-employment Drug Testing: Urinalysis versus Hair Analysis - Pre-employment drug testing through urine analysis is not the most effective way to test potential employees for illicit drug use. There are too many ways to alter a urine drug test and, with the exception of marijuana, urinalysis tests only show positive for drugs that have been used within two to three days of the test. Hair analysis is a far more effective way to screen for illegal drug use as it shows drug use and drug history for several months. Carol Patten quotes a report that was just released by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration stating that while drug use is more prevalent among the unemployed, 70% of people ages 18-49 who reported current illicit drug...   [tags: Pre-Employment Drug Testing] 918 words

An Examination of Standardized Testing - Do standardized tests really improve the quality of public education.
