Opining about new disciplinary program (11/01/09)
To the Editor: The days of the three-day "vacation" from school appear to be over. Even 30 years ago, there were students who strived to be suspended from school for three days off.

The disciplinary action of suspending a student for absenteeism has always appeared to be more of a reward than a punishment...
