Taking action to keep students from changing schools

The New York Times has a story today about efforts in Michigan and elsewhere to help keep students from switching schools all the time by assisting their parents with rent.

You would still need to do something about the Bristol Blight Nazis tearing down their homes while they are at school .

Sounds a little like what our Board of Ed has been saying.

Another approach would be to give students vouchers to attend the public or private school of their choice.
