Okay, so I was driving to school today whenever I came up with this idea.

People get tax breaks/paychecks whenever their school-age children get good grades in school. Whenever their children get bad grades or rack up unexcused absences, their taxes go up or they may have to pay a fine.
Thoughts?

You're getting dumber by the post.

Must be a Southern thing.

And by that I mean the invasive state apparatus, the very idea of making citizens subject to the whims of a teacher's grade. Not even fascists were inventive in this sense. As an Orwellian fantasy, it rather veers toward the Soviet mentality.

It would certainly raise the possibility of teachers and parents conspiring for monetary gain, but the objective of this is to give parents an incentive to push their kids to study hard. Soon enough students around the country would be studying like Asians.

If you're looking to turn the U.S. into communist China, then you're one misguided puppy.
