Mum forces son to stand on street for bad grades

TAMPA - WEARING a sign around his neck that read, 'Honk if I need an education,' 15-year-old James Mond III stood for nearly four hours on a Tampa, Florida, street corner. Fed up with his bad grades, his mother sent him there hoping to teach him a lesson about the importance of an education. Ronda Holder never finished high school and doesn't want the same for her son. So she sent him out on Wednesday with a sign telling the world about his low 1.22 Grade Point Average. The Department of Children and Families is investigating whether the incident might be a form of maltreatment. Ms Holder says she doesn't care about the critics. She wants her son to have an education. -- AP
