Why create havic where there is none. To put problem children with non aggressive ones is looking for trouble. Trouble making children are not motivated to do good. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. If these kids wanted to learn, they would not disrupt the class.

The children would have NO interaction with Cuthberton students. As a society should we not try to teach our young right from wrong, even when they have made mistakes? Should we not try to make them better and productive members of society? Or, would it be better to only give them punishment with no teaching or redemption allowed for mistakes made? In a nutshell, Cuthberson has the space that the intended school does not. Students would have no interaction with Cuthbertson students. And, this program has had success in the past. I'd rather remediate and educate than incarcerate in the future.

Cuthberston high school has classes with 42 kids in them, 900 students assigned to 1 guidence counsler. To help out troubled kids is a nice jesture on the taxpayers behalf, but the only reason this wing is not being used by regular school population is due to funding. In which is being spent on a alternate learning program. Busing for these kids and extra techers to try and tech them somthing. I would rather use the funds on the kids that want to succede. The world needs ditch diggers too.
