Show Me the Money
I’ve posted before about schools rewarding top of the class students with Happy Meals, and here’s another get-good-grades tactic I’d love you all to weigh in on: paying kids for As. This USAToday article discusses how many CEOs use financial incentives (and we’re not talking a buck or two) to motivate their kids to get high GPAs. Granted, these families have larger than average piggy banks to dig into, but what do you think? Is cash the cure for poor report cards, or do you think equating money with grades takes away from the real purpose of learning?
