School tries to sell grades for cash -- administrators halt program


From the "You ain't gonna believe this" file comes this gem: Rosewood Middle School in Goldsboro, N.C. unveiled a plan to raise much-needed funds by selling middle schoolers better grades.

A $20 "donation" would get you (or your poor kid, who really has grounds for a lawsuit if you would pony up cash for something like this) 20 test points that could be used to boost grades on the test of that student's choosing.

Principal Susie Shepherd's explanation? "Last year they did chocolates, and it didn't generate anything," she told the News Observer.
