Usually kids, who get into trouble, with the law, are the ones, who live in the Principals office. The Scarred straight program has worked a lot for kids, who have been caught, on the first offense. Whether it's shop lifting, joy riding or loitering, the police have picked up these kids and warned them, to stay out of trouble. However it doesn't get through to them. So strict reenforcement has to be applied. Load up all kids, who have shop lifted, or has been constantly been in trouble, with the school Principal, on a bus and take them to a state institution. Have a tough guard, like a Marine drill Sergeant, there to greet them. Escort them through the main gate. Next have all of these kids put on Prison uniforms. This will give them more feeling, what it's like on the inside. Take them to a room, with a surveillance camera, and the toughest inmates, to get these kids straight. They may use profanity, but talking tough to these troubled kids might save their lives and make them walk the straight plane.
