Random Thought #23

I know this ten-year-old kid who doesn’t go to school. He hasn’t gone for a couple of years. The other day I asked him why he doesn’t go to school anymore, being “still so young”. He said he got kicked out. I asked him what he could have possibly done that was so horrible to get kicked out. “Bunking” he told me.

Wait!

Let me get this straight, as punishment for a kid that bunks school too much they… kicked him out?! That makes no sense to me! Wouldn’t a better punishment have been to FORCE him to go to school every day?
