Pay Day for Students

Students in cash-incentive programs in both Washington and Chicago got paid last week, according to this AP article. It'll be awhile until we know whether or not these plans are actually working, although teachers in Washington say that they've seen less tardiness since the program has been in place.

I wonder whether students will be more motivated to earn more cash now that they've seen one pay day or whether interest in the program will wane as the year goes on.

What's your prediction?
