A Florida high school has come under fire for the way it handles students' at lunch time.
Hudson High School in Pasco County, Fla., reportedly segregates students depending on their grade point average and the number of absences they have. The program was launched at the beginning of the school year, official told FOX13.
Officials described the program, called "On-track", as a way to encourage students to perform better in school, but some students feel it divides them.
To be a part of On-track, students must have a GPA higher than 2.0, fewer than four absences, no F's on their report and they must earn all their credits for the semester. Students who fit the requirements receive special privileges, including free tickets to sporting events and the ability to eat lunch outside instead of in the cafeteria. The students also received a bracelet and ID labeling them as part of the program.
What a horrible idea. Why not allow the higher GPA's to be a lunch partner to someone with a lower one in hopes he/she can mentor that person.
