Montgomery alternative school replaces electives with counseling

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WTVM) -

It's a new day for alternative education in Montgomery.

The system is taking a more intense approach to the behavior that landed students in an alternative school.

Electives have been eliminated, instead giving students at least a 90 minute intense counseling session every day.

They'll spend nine weeks in this environment before they have the opportunity to return to traditional classes.

The changes come in the wake of research that shows alternative school students are much mor likely to become criminals when they leave.
