Quote:it just doesn't seem right to track students like animals. I would ditch school all the time, my grades were less than par, but I still graduated... from my experience, somebody who doesn't want to go to class won't go to class, its pretty simple, applying more pressure to the situation, adding more stress to it like this will only make the bad cases worse. they are gonna pester the wrong troubled kid and end up with another columbine on their hands lol
Each school day, the delinquent students get an automated "wake-up" phone call reminding them that they need to get to school on time. In addition, five times a day they are required to enter a code that tracks their locations: as they leave for school, when they arrive at school, at lunchtime, when they leave school and at 8pm. These students are also assigned an adult "coach" who calls them at least three times a week to see how they are doing and help them find effective ways to make sure they get to school.
