Zeros Aren't Permitted


My school is considering going to a "Zeros Aren't Permitted" or ZAP program next year. Ultimately students who do not complete assignments would have to go to a structured study hall to complete the work they have missed. What are your thoughts about a program like this? Would it encourage students to complete their assignments? How would it impact quality of work?

    So you said "assume". So would if it is after school? I know I would not slack off because I wanted to stay after school so badly.

    I don't know if it would be an answer to prayers, but I can see how it might work for some students. I know that some students work better when they have in-school suspension because they have a quiet environment with no distractions.
