For the bad idea files

One of the worst ideas I've ever heard. Holding families accountable for students' school attendance, fine. Increasing their risk of homelessness, really stupid.

UPDATE: Chris says, 'why not just give families a reduction in their rent if the students make it to school every day?'

No, no, no, no, no, Chris! Carrots cost money. Sticks are free.

(But I really like the idea)

I say let's hold everyone to it, and dump homeowners on the street too, if they neglect their kids.

If they aren't willing to do that, I gotta agree with you--that's one stupid idea.
