Cash Idea Crashes
Administrators in Goldsboro, N.C., have nixed a cash-for-grades fundraiser at Rosewood Middle School, which was offering 20 test points to students in exchange for a $20 donation. Principal Susie Shepherd had said she approved the idea after a parent advisory council presented it as a way to raise money. Ms. Shepherd rejected the suggestion that extra points on two tests could make a difference in a final grade.
