2. John Glenn High School in Westland, MI is trying a new approach when it comes to helping kids get their grades up. Money. Local businessman Glenn Shaw donated $50,000 to fund a program that offers monetary incentives if students raise their grade point average. In order to participate, students must sign up and then pledge to raise their GPA by at least .5 points. If they do, they are rewarded $200/semester. The students are mentored by 92 volunteer teachers, who can view their grades online and meet with them to discuss a need for tutoring, counseling, etc. Do you think this program sounds like a good idea?
