NYC Mayor Michael Boomberg has announced a plan to combat school absenteeism.
Anyone with more than ten absences will get a phone call from a celebrity or sports figure such as Jose Reyes or Magic Johnson encouraging them to go to school.
How stupid is this idea?
I’m a chronic truant, my motivation is to hit the magic number so I get a phone call from a famous person.
How about a celebrity phone call for students who maintain stellar attendance records instead, Mayor Mental Midget?
