  • Students should have their divers license revoked if failing

    If they are doing this for athletes why shouldn't they do this for drivers license something operated by the government, just like our schools. Also, it provides motivation to keep grades above failing, and would provide a second thought when you are about to blow off a major assignment .

  • Yes and No

    They should have their licenses revoked if failing. Driving is a privilege not an absolute necessity. But I also think that if you are getting F's should you have it revoked, and only in high school. So basically I think if you have an f in high school you should have your licenses revoked until the age of 18 or until you grades are up.

  • Yes, it is an incentive.

    Yes, students failing in high school should have their drivers licenses revoked, because driving is a privilege, not a right. Students should have the same incentives that adults do. Adults who do not pay their child support, or who drink and drive, or who do not pay speeding tickets, have their licenses revoked too.

  • I pick no

  • That would be unfair.

    First of all, how well you drive and how well you read, write and do math are unrelated. It should be revoked if the student is failing on purpose, but if they are trying, that is not fair. Maybe they can be on the road and see something that could help them in school, or drive to a tutor or something!

  • No, students should not get there driver licence taken away.

    Teenagers should not get there licence taken away if they are failing a class. Because some students may be struggling in just one class. If it's more that one and they are not even making an effort to get it up then yes, the licence should be revoked till the school can see more of an academic improvement.

  • It is a poorly thought out punishment for more reasons than one.

    The whole point of having a license is so that you can prove that you are eligible to drive (i.E. Have passed a driver's test, not a danger on the roads, etc.). A license helps to cull the amount of dangerous drivers on the road, which in turn helps to limit accidents and other such things. In order to have a driver's license one must follow the road rules/laws. If one breaks these rules/laws then they have their license penalised or revoked. These laws are in place for safety in regards to driving, so the removing of the license of anyone who breaks these laws allows for the maintaing of safety on roads.

    With all that in mind, taking away the license of students failing in class is not an appropriate nor rational course of action. Driver's licenses have a specific use and are implemented/needed for specific reasons. Schooling and driving (except in the case to teach driving) should not be crossed over as they are two completely different aspects of society. Taking away a person's driver license for anything other than unsafe driving/driving practices could be seen as taking away from the actual purpose of a driver's license.

    While I agree that this punishment could be used as incentive, I view it as inappropriate as driving has nothing to do with school (except as a means of travel to and from school). Driving is not a right given by a school or in relation to school, and therefore should not be included in any punishments or rewards in relation to schooling.

    One would also need to think about the reasons why a student might be failing a class. Is it appropriate to take away the license of a student who, despite their best efforts, cannot grasp the subject content of a particular class and thus fails because of it? Is it appropriate to take away the license of a student who grasps the content, but tests badly thus failing? What about if a student is sitting borderline between passing and failing a certain subject and has a bad day on the day of their final exam for any number of reasons and as such fails the exam thus failing the subject? The statement appears to imply that if a student is failing in a class or subject they should then be punished without consideration as to why a student might be failing. This, as such, is unfair in the fact that a student might not be able to help failing at a subject.

    Finally, it is a bad punishment because revoking a license is something only the government can do (via court, etc.). Schools do not have the authority to give or revoke licenses of students as they please. Schools and parents are and should be the only ones responsible for punishing a student for failing a class if that punishment is needed. Government should not interfere with this process as it is personal to a student.

  • Makes no sense

    While it might be a good idea to give incentives to high school students who are failing, driving really has nothing to do with school, and you don't know the students circumstances, and thus cannot make a broad generalization on the subject. Finally, it assumes all students have licenses, and you cannot have such a selective punishment.

  • The two things have nothing to do with each other.

    Revoking a driver's license for poor school performance is utterly pointless. The punishment and the offense have absolutely nothing to do with each other. I failed classes in high school because I didn't feel challenged and the atmosphere was terrible; I didn't even have a driver's license. Plus it implies that the simple act of being able to drive leads to deviant behavior.
