Skipping
I have students that will skip class every day. I have build rapport with my students so they stopped skipping my class, but they keep skipping other core classes. I do not know how to get my students to care about school or their future. I tell them I will write them up, or call their parents, but it does not seem to upset them. How do I get my students to care about school and about their futures?

If the students are still skipping, perhaps (one-on-one allow them to come into your class during lunch to talk. Try to discuss what they want out of life, where they see themselves in x-number of years. If they don't have much self-esteem/respect, encourage them that you see the potential in them and then explain how difficult it is to see them throwing it away by skipping class. Make sure to emphasize that you care about their future because they are your student. Offer the student a re-group time either the next week or in the next two weeks to just talk about things if they are willing.
Hopefully, this meaningful conversation should help a little along with the promise to be available in the future.

I think that it is extremely hard to get students to care about school and their future. One thing that comes to mind that may be able to help is to find something the students are passionate about and try and take that away from them. If their is a student who is on one of the schools sports teams, talk to the coach and threaten suspension from games if they do not start coming to class.

In my opinion the best thing to do would be to sit down and have a talk with them. I would try and see what type of future they want to have for themselves and see if maybe something is going on at home that may be causing them to not care about school or wanting to do anything. Another thing would be maybe try and help them find something that they love and if they know that they have to go to school to do it they may actually want to do well in classes.

Trying to discipline them is not always the answer. Talking to them on a personal level might help change their attitude. More than likely they do not have a good home life and parents that care for them.

If I were in this situation, I would send them to the principles office and see if you can get them suspended and sent home. I know from experience it is hard to get students to care about futures because they think they will not get very far. I believe that sometimes you have to show them what they are missing out on.
