Wayne County school officials have put the brakes on a cash for grades fundraising effort at a Goldsboro middle school.
The school district reacted to today's article by Lynn Bonner, in which she reported that a $20 donation to Rosewood Middle School would have gotten a student 20 test points — 10 extra points on two tests of the student's choosing. That could raise a B to an A, or a failing grade to a D.
Are any individual schools in Orange County following similar policies? Or any other sort of classroom incentives to reward fundraising?
