15-year-old James Mond is being forced by his mother to stand on various Tampa, Florida street corners with a sign that details his poor GPA and bad score on an achievement test.

The sign encourages motorists to "Honk if I need an education."

Rhoda Holder says James will have to perform this task for a week, and believes her tough love will prevent her child from becoming a drop out.

Psychologist Stacey Scheckner, who My Fox Tampa spoke to, thinks this humiliating technique will backfire and result in James acting out more.

Remember when that guy got caught stealing gas here in Casper from Bentz's Town Pump and had to do the same thing?   What do you think of this type of punishment?
