do not make your end of year reading celebrations about the number. Instead, ask the students what they are proud of. What they have achieved and celebrate them all. Let them have the time to see how far they have come so that they can leave our schools with a sense of accomplishment that they might not otherwise have had.
I like the endeavor behind the idea of rewarding users of public transport. However, I fear that like all the other ‘reward’ programs (FlyBuys etc) this information will be mined and misused. I always think that we miss the greater good associated with public transport, I am not sure of focusing on the individual really responds to this. To be honest, I am not sure if Luxembourg’s free travel is even solving the problem.
