"Sometimes a student just needs a new pair of shoes as encouragement to get to school, Curtis said."
You've GOT to be kidding...right?
Bribe a student to go to school?
This is what you reap, when you sow "progressive seed."
If you need to fine someone for skipping out, how about charging our county commissioners for missing a meeting?

My daughter and her husband had a problem with their son not turning in homework assignments. Their solution could be applied here as well. One of them would take a personal day from work, take their son to school, and stick like glue to him. They attended classes with him, had lunch in the cafeteria with him, etc. It took just twice for him to see the light. Now his grades have jumped up to A's and he realizes that failure to meet his obligations at school (including attendance, homework, attitude, etc.) will result in the absolute humiliation of having a parent monitor him all day. Worked like a charm! It might be worth it for some of these parents to take even a half day off to follow their kids around. Nothing is more humiliating to a child than to be monitored by their parents---but if they earned it by poor behavior, then they deserve it. And it is a lesson they learn very, very fast!
