The principal of a charter school in Cincinnati says they've tried everything else to get students to attend school. Now, they're paying them.
For seniors, it's $25 a week until graduation day (part of the money goes into a savings account that they can access at graduation). For underclassmen, it's $10 a week. Students have to have perfect attendance and good conduct to get the money.
Will it work? Well, on the first day of the program, attendance was 100%. But whether it will work long term - and whether it's the best plan - is up for debate.
We'd love to hear your comments on this program out of Cincinnati.
