Try to Top This Innovation — Students Bet on Their Grades


This new business has received a lot of press over the past week. Not surprisingly, there’s been a lot of criticism as opponents have labeled this as mere gambling. However, it appears that the company has found a loophole by positioning this as a game of skill versus a game of chance; the skill being the student’s ability to get a desired grade based on his effort/knowledge.

Regardless of your opinion about this concept, it truly is a novel idea…and one I wish was around when I was in school!

Looking forward to your thoughts!
