Some schools across the country are trying incentives to encourage kids to show up for school, like I-pods and cash.

I know for me it was not even an option to not go to school, and If you were sick you needed to be a shade away from needing to go to the hospital before you were allowed to stay home. And, of course that meant inside all day and no playing with your friends when they got home from school. But, sadly times have changed.  A California school district actually teamed up with a car dealership and they have a raffle for kids to win a New Car!  Some experts think it is a good idea, since this habit can lead to kids dropping out of school all together. Now let's just hope if and when the kids show up, they learn something too.
