Texas City Offers Reward for Truancy Tips

Arlington – Arlington, Texas is offering a first-of-its kind program to keep kids in school. Any person who reports students who are skipping class will be given a reward.

The incentive program, called "You Earn, They Learn. Stop Truancy," is a partnership between the Arlington school district and police department that will offer $20 to a tipster who reports a student who has skipped school for the day and $40 to the tipster if the student has missed several days of school.

Police officers will verify the report before any award is given. The tips will remain anonymous.

Many parents do believe the incentives will work.

What they did when I was a kid, we’d get tickets and you’d have to go to court for it.

But that doesn’t seem to be working, so I guess it’s a better way to try to get to it,” Monica Adams, an Arlington parent told myFOXdfw.com.

I can see it now, friends will take turns skipping class so they can all get $40 for the weekend.
