What Well-Behaved Youngsters

Here's an interesting practice from Tony Soprano's stomping ground of New Jersey--school districts that don't have any students. That's certainly a more effective way to stifle incident reporting than the one we have here in NYC. You know, the chancellor publicly demands all incidents be reported, then he grades schools based on the number of incidents, possibly resulting in 20,000 bucks merit pay right out of the principal's pocket.

Another advantage is that if you have no students, you don't actually need any schools, or cafeterias, or custodians. You do need a school board, though. After all, what's the point of having a school district if you can't pay administrators?

That's what it's all about, isn't it?
