"Humiliating And Embarrassing": This Is What It's Like To Be Strip-Searched At A Music Festival
When Savana Redding was summoned from her middle school classroom to the principal's office, she remembers walking down the hallway wondering why.

School officials were worried about reports of students using drugs and alcohol.
