Learn and earn

An Associated Press article about a pilot program in two Georgia schools that pays students struggling in math and science to attend study hall for four hours a week, quoted Jerome Morris, associate professor of social foundations of education and a research fellow at the Institute for Behavioral Research. Morris noted that wealthy families have frequently rewarded their children for making good grades.

“Poor families just can’t do that,” Morris said. “They have to tell their children, ‘You have to go to school just to learn.’ ”
