D.C. students being paid for summer school | WashingtonExaminer.com DC started paying kids $5.25 an hour to attend summer school. That alone pissed me off. But then I read the article further, and the kids being paid are the fucking goof offs who cause havoc and don't try during the regular school year. So this isn't an incentive open to all. It's a reward for the jerk offs that already screwing shit up for people. And the taxpayers have to pay all that money for that. And I read nothing that says that the payment is even contingent on hitting certain marks. Meanwhile, the unions get their extra gravy by filling up these classes.
