School District Giving Away iPod Shuffles to Pump Up Attendance|
According to iLounge, the Vacaville School District, located west of Sacramento in Solano County, California, has begun giving away iPod shuffles and iTunes gift cards to push the schools' attendance higher.
You can watch the story, which aired on CNN, here.
This sort of thing is kind of an inevitable consequence of tying school funding to school attendance. When you treat students like commodities, the only way to offer them an incentive above and beyond the benefits of an education.
