I personally think this is a good idea. Why not give someone some incentive to do well? If you want to influence behaviour, you have to make the individual want to do well. Helping them pay for college is a good way to do it. The only problem I can see is that it's kind of discriminating against the stupid kids who really try but just can't get As. It's not really fair to them, they just sit there, furrowing their brows, scratching their heads, trying to figure out why you can't just add 1/4 + 1/2 to get 2/6. Although, if you're too dumb to get As in highschool, then you'd best get used to the world being 'unfair'. Plus, if everyone went to college, who'd pump our gas and pick up our garbage????
