In addition, Juan Cruz a 13 year old boy at Dale Junior High states “sometimes I ‘m sick and other times, I just don’t feel like going.” This means that students are adapting to the idea of not going to school which is very harmful to their physical, mental, and social health. So by tracking students every move, we as a society can help students get to class on time, expand their knowledge and overall stop kids from skipping school. Even though I agree with the idea of GPS tracking devices, not all people were supportive. Many parents say that this device is absolutely a disgrace and ridiculous because they will have to pay for it if the device is lost or stolen. However, that’s not always the case in this situation.

  • Narrative Essay On Time Between Time

    Time Between Times. I lounged in the same spot, an old patio chair minus the cushions on my back deck, and watched my kids come and go. They are a flurry of youthful exuberance. Fighting, screaming, yipping, laughing, and talking a mile a minute-- bare feet, bug bites, and snack-hungry tummies—they demanded and took but also gave kisses and breathless hugs.
