A middle school in North Carolina is selling better test scores to students in a bid to raise money.
The Raleigh News & Observer newspaper reported Wednesday that a parent advisory council at Rosewood Middle School came up with the fundraising plan after last year's chocolate sale flopped.
The school will sell 20 test points to students for $20. Students can add 10 extra points to each of two tests of their choice. The extra points could take a student from a B to an A on those tests or from a failing grade to a passing one.
Principal Susie Shepherd said it's not enough of an impact to change a student's overall marks.
Officials at the state Department of Public Instruction said exchanging grades for money teaches children the wrong lessons.
