Students in Muskogee can win a laptop, an MP3 player or a cell phone just for showing up to class.
The 7th & 8th Grade Center there began the incentive program Feb. 18 and will end it this Friday, according to a school newsletter. The school plans to run two more similar incentive periods before the end of the school year.
Students must be in attendance and not tardy to be entered into a drawing for the electronics, which are paid for through local donors and other activities, according to the newsletter.
Do you think schools should offer incentives to attend school? What would you consider to be appropriate incentives?
