In this series the Houston Press looks at how the Houston Independent School district has provided at-risk students with a single disciplinary option: 180 days at a Community Education Partners facility. These facilities, run privately and for profit, have a $17.9 contract guaranteeing them a 2,500 student enrollment. Students do their work on computer terminals without instruction by certified teachers and often grade each other's papers. The environment, which is designed for disruptive kids functioning below grade level, is like a millstone for kids who work at or above their grade level, who have perhaps committed a single, minor infraction.
