New York school ‘strip search’ of black girls aged 12 investigated

Allegations that four black 12-year-old girls were strip searched at a school should be investigated at state level, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says.

He said the allegations were “deeply disturbing” and raised “serious issues of racial and gender bias”.

The girls and their parents say the school nurse and assistant principal searched them believing they had drugs.

Local education authorities question whether a strip search took place, but have hired a firm to investigate.
