Cash for grades?

I’ve heard of bribing the teacher, but this is a bit much.

There's no way the principal from the Breakfast Club would ever have approved this.

A school in North Carolina decided it needed to raise some money to buy some new technology.

So Rosewood Middle School came up with an idea where students can pay money to improve their grades. They can buy 20 points on a test for a $20 donation.

Of course, once word got out, people got angry, and the principal Susie Shepherd decided to retire.

I think this is a little much, no? I understand schools are in desperate need of money, but to charge students extra cash to get good grades is a little ridiculous.

I wonder what the thought process was behind it that made people think it was a good idea.
