Talk about keeping them after school? This idea worked

To the Editor:

— Maybe the school board should institute the action a West Virginia principal took at her school. She had the entire school attend school on a Saturday. All the teachers and parents were supportive.

The teachers administered tests on that Saturday that would affect the students’ grades, so everyone showed up. The peer pressure that resulted took care of any future bomb threats and they haven't had any since.
