Just finished all the "Johnny Jackass is failing because he won't do any fucking work" calls except for 8th period. I still have about 10 more to do during my planning period tomorrow. I got several promises that the kid WILL do his/ her work or else, another with dark threats of "motivation," more than a few "no habla ingles," a couple "I'm trying but s/he's 18" and half of them with dead phones, no voicemail, or changed numbers. We'll see if this changes any minds on doing work. Seems like it'll affect many of them positively, but not some of the worst ones.
