High school students in the Yuma area may win a brand new car if they have a perfect attendance record. An Arizona car dealership will give away two cars next spring to keep students in school. Will programs like this motivate students to stay in school?
Fisher Chevrolet in Yuma, Arizona, launched its "Cool to Stay in School" last school year and gave away a Chevy Cavalier to a San Luis High School student in a raffle.
To be eligible, students must have a spotless attendance record. This school year, the dealership will give away a 2006 Chevy Cobalt and a 2006 Dodge Caliber.
Will programs like this motivate students to stay in school? Should other schools across the country try a similar approach?
