Operation Stay in School in Full Swing in Robstown
ROBSTOWN (Kiii News) -
Robstown High School Principal Richard Waterhouse, along with teachers and volunteers, knocked on the doors of students who have yet to register this year, as well as those who failed last year and haven't show up to school yet.
School in Robstown started three weeks ago.
The goal is to get those kids back in the classroom, because with a high school diploma, their chance of success later in life increases.
Waterhouse talked with one family on Friday, who feels like their hands are tied in an effort to get their daughter back in the classroom.
"You know what, it's never too late to do this," Waterhouse said. "I don't care if she is married or not. It's never too late to do this.
"We tell her to go to school, but she listens to her husband," said the girl's grandmother. "And I don't want to cause problems there."
"Maybe if he talks to me," Waterhouse responded. "Every real husband wants her to do better."
Waterhouse said that, if just one student comes back to class, Operation Stay in School will have been a success.
