Here's a great article about a new Catholic school organization that has kids work 5 days a month in lieu of paying tuition. Brilliant! It strikes me as a great way to help get some of the more promising (but desperately impoverished) students to see that they have a stake in their education, as well as providing them with an entry into the working world where they can develop marketable skills and networks that stand a good chance of helping them to become solidly middle-class adults, rather than remaining poor.
