Texas school district under fire for searching students' underwear for poop: report Nearly two dozen children were forced to pull down their pants after feces were found in their Gustine school's gymnasium, KHOU reported. An 11-year-old girl said she tried to refuse the inspection but was forced to undergo it. 'I felt like they violated my privacy,' she told the station. BY Nina Golgowski NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 3:52 PM KHOU Nearly two dozen elementary school students in Gustine, Texas, were reportedly forced to pull down their pants for an underwear inspection after feces was found in the school's gymnasium. Nearly two-dozen elementary school students were reportedly forced to undergo an underwear inspection after feces were repeatedly found on their gymnasium's floor. The partial strip search performed in the small town of Gustine, Texas, on Monday has since led to outrage by both students and their appalled parents. "I felt uncomfortable and I didn't want to do it," 11-year-old Eliza Medina told KHOU. "I felt like they violated my privacy." Eliza's mother, Maria Medina, said the students were separated by gender before they were ordered to "pull down their pants to check them to see if they could find anything," she told the station. KHOU Gustine Independent School District Superintendent Ken Baugh (pictured) expressed mutual disagreement on how the investigation was handled. "I was furious... I mean, I was furious," Medina told KHOU once she heard what happened at the school located about 90 miles southwest of Fort Worth. She expressed understanding that finding feces on the gym's floor is an issue, but so is inappropriately touching their children. Eliza said she tried to protest the search but was told it was mandatory. The district's superintendent said he does not support the decision made by his staff and he hopes to finish an investigation into what happened on Wednesday.
