Kids getting paid to get tutored?

Recently a few weeks ago a decision was made for kids to get paid to stay after school and get tutored. There has been a lot of chatter about this being a good or a bad idea, but it seems to have both pros and cons. Right now the kids are set on an 15 week track where they get paid $8 per hour to be tutored after school. Also the students may receive bonuses for higher grades and better attendance to school. The hopes are that the students will possibly look forward to going to school and start to want to do well. Most kids believe this is not right and they talk about how they have problems, but they can still keep their grades up. There is no way to see if this will be a success or not till the end, and I will be writing about it once the 15 weeks are over.
