This is anecdata, but curbing truancy...I haven't seen efforts to that end lead to a better educated kid. You might get some parents in jail,or kids put into state custody (which will most likely lead to multiple transfers in and out of different school districts as placements change). Or you get kids who actively don't want to be in the classroom creating havoc for others.I'n not a fan of high school in some cases. My step-daughter, and other people I know, were better served by "dropping out" so they could go get their GED and enroll in community college (she's now half-through with a MA program). And I'm sure they were entered into a database somewhere as dropping out before getting their diploma. I guess what I'm saying is that the traditional high school environment is not always the best place to get an education for some folks. The more society can de-stigmatize alternate paths, the better, IMHO.cm
