I don't believe in buying kids new phones as rewards for getting straight As. Learning things should be its own reward. When I was in middle school I knew a girl who got $50 for every report-card A. I have no idea what happened to her, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that this didn't make her any happier today than I am. Though I guess she may be richer.

Dude, I dunno. I got $100 for a perfect report card, and I'm still broke as hell. I bet she's part of the 99%.

Studies have shown that rewarding for grades is a good thing: higher grad rate, etc.

Just sayin'.
