D.C. To Pay Middle School Students For Attendance, Behavior

The city plans to spend about $3 million on the pilot program. The money will go to about 3,000 students in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee said it's during middle school when many students either learn the value of education or start down the road toward failing or dropping out.
The pay-for-performance program will reward up to $100 every two weeks for attending classes, behaving well and achieving other goals.
