Interesting. But that "Paying for grades" is dead wrong. It does increase motivation over a short period of time but loses it's power over the long-term and causes serious deficits in motivation by the college level, unless the student has replaced the money motivation with some internal motivation.
I agree with Charles. It takes long hard work to get kids to be internally motivated, throwing money at them might work briefly but what happens when they get to a point in their lives where they aren't being paid for working hard at their grades? Besides, I thought the article was going to tell me that my 25-year old cuisinart is worth a bundle, so I'm feeling curmudgeonly.
