High Schools Offers Money For Good Grades

“A new incentive in Virginia Beach rewards students and teachers with cash for good grades on advanced placement exams. ‘I think we’re trying to build an incentive for students to take on some of this rigorous work,’ Advanced Placement Chemistry teacher Patty Cook said. At Salem High School, Cook has more AP students this year than last. ‘They really come away with some great experience,’ Cook said. The rigorous course gives students a glimpse at college level work. And this year there is an extra bonus for students and teachers. Salem High School has teamed up with the National Math and Science Initiative. Through a privately backed grant, students received $100 for every three, four or five they earn on an Advanced Placement exam. Teachers are paid as well.” w/ photo + video
