What are they trying to teach these kids?

A suburban school district has the bright idea to pay students to turn in their drug-using friends. Principal Randy Spain claims "It encourages them to do the right thing."

While Mr. Spain is offering $50, just down the road in Dallas kids are carrying tens of thousands of dollars in cash from dealers.

Obviously no one can outbid the dealers. And kids who "do the right thing" will do it without the reward, because that's what "doing the right thing" means. So can't Mr. Spain find some other way to spend the school district's money?
