Do you think we (taxpayers) should pay kids to go to school and get good grades?
It sounded like a bad idea when I first heard a few cities doing it a few years back and kind of just disregarded it. Reading a cracked article from the other day (#4) made me think about it a little more, and the whole thing makes a lot of sense. In theory of course.
Sure it would cost a lot to begin with, but if these people had that little boost of motivation to do well, it seems we'd create a smarter more informed, rational thinking america. It seems the thing would pay for itself, with smarter people getting better jobs that would be more money to get taxes from. Who wants to be the first person to poke holes in the thinking behind this, because I really think this could work.
