This outdated discplinary practice damages students’ futures
Imagine if the prize for winning Senior Survivor was a free week of excused absences from school. The number of people that would sign up to participate would skyrocket, and the amount of money fundraised would double.
This would be a great incentive because this is something almost any student at Dexter High School would like to receive. So, why is this same “prize” commonly used as a means of discipline in schooling systems across America?
