Chicago schools bribe parents for school involvement

With the struggle to get parents involved in their children's schoolwork and activities, some Chicago area schools are now offering incentives in exchange for parents' cooperation. Whether a sign that Chicago school boards are fed up with the lack of participation by parents, or an honest attempt at helping their students, this controversial new program is definitely getting widespread attention (and criticism).
