Should Global Positioning System (GPS) devices be required for habitually truant students?
Global Positioning System (GPS) devices are not a great idea for habitually truant students. According to Hayley Tsukayama, "Attendance does dip after the program is done" (source link). This shows that while the students use the GPS device once they get it taken off they go back to their old habits. This also shows that the government is now trying to ADMINISTER more control to the youth as well. According to Hayley Tsukayama, "Students in the program get automated phone calls in the mornings reminding them to go to school" (source link). This shows that this kind of CONDUCT may move the students to rebel against the GPS systems by not going to school at all no matter the consequences. This also shows that the ELEMENT of making sure the students are going to school is uncalled for. In conclusion, students can lie about being at school and use their codes at the time their supposed to but still not be in school.
