Students at 25 Houston elementary schools can earn up to $440 for good grades on math tests. Parents will get slightly less and could also receive $180 for attending parent-teacher conferences to discuss students' work. The $1.5 million plan -- paid for by a Dallas foundation -- is expected to include extra pay for teachers to hold the conferences -- as much as $40 per student.
