Learn and Earn Continued

The Learn & Earn program in Fulton County, Georgia that I reported on awhile back just finished up its 15-week pilot program, and this article in the Atlanta-Journal Constitution profiles one of the participants who found the program, which offered students $8 an hour for studying, successful.

"It was his success that really got him excited," said [Jailyn Brown's] mom, Alanna Taylor. "He got more benefit from his good grades than the money."

We'll have to wait until the summer to get the official results from the program, and there's no word yet on whether the program will continue past the pilot stage, according to the article.
