Q:

Can a teacher search your backpack without your consent?

A student at my school got sent to the office for not taking his notes. Shortly after he left the classroom, the teacher opened his backpack, without asking the student, and searched through his notebooks and smelling around it to see if he was hiding any drugs. The student did not have any drugs on him. Is this against the fourth amendment of our constitution? Or do teachers have the right to do so?

I live in the state of California by the way.
