To encourage learning, The Chicago Public School system has implemented paying student for good grades. According to the Chicago Tribune: “Up to 5,000 freshmen at 20 Chicago public high schools will get cash for good—and even average—grades as part of a new, Harvard-designed test program that city education leaders are rolling out…Students will be measured every five weeks in math, English, social sciences, science and physical education. An A nets $50, a B equals $35 and a C still brings in $20. Students will get half the money upfront, with the remainder paid upon graduation. A straight-A student could earn up to $4,000 by the end of his or her sophomore year. Do you believe this practice should be adopted by all school across the state of Illinois? Take a position on the issue. Remember to address the opposition regardless of the position you take on the issue.
