There's actually research that proves this works. I remember hearing last year about a study that was done in six major cities, including Washington, D.C. and Chicago, that bribed students-- yes, actually paid them money-- for different positive behaviors such as attendance, good grades, reading, ect. At the conclusion of multiple years of this study, they found that most 'bribes' did not increase performance or learning for students-- except, that is, for paying them to read. Thanks for sharing.
