Eastern Kentucky School Offers New Type Of Reward

LOUISA, Ky. (AP) - It's the called the Hard Work Cafe. The room at Lawrence County Middle School is decked out with a flat screen TV and visitors get to munch on pizza and slushies. But the room is only for top students.

It takes hard work and perfect attendance to get on the guest list. The program started this year, and is designed to encourage pupils to work hard at school.

Principal Tom Castle says teachers recommend one student in every class to visit the cafe, which is open Fridays during lunch, each week. He says students must be considered hardest working in his or her class, have perfect attendance for the week and free of disciplinary problems.

    I think that this is a great idea for our kids. For all these kids that work really hard and go to class its great. I think every school should have some type of reward program.

    Good, sounds like it's a good incentive to work hard. Now if they'd give them a full scholarship to college if they get invited to the room 10 times in a school year, you'll really get them to work harder.
