Harris, Ronald. Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare, September 2001, Vol. 28 Issue 3, pg. 211. The School Attendance Demonstration Project (SADP) was aimed at encouraging AFDC teens in San Diego Unified School District to finish high school. The project used a combined approach of the financial incentive in the form of a penalty for non-attendance in school, and the provision of social services. The findings indicated that SADP did not effect graduations and that at-risk teens from families receiving public assistance have on-going problems with securing an education that are difficult to correct with SADP services and sanctions.
