[There was a video here]

A mother in Tampa put her 15-year-old son on a street corner wearing a sign that read "GPA 1.22...Honk if I need education." Apparently she tried everything to get the kid to get his grades up but nothing worked and shame, she realized, is a very powerful motivator. Maybe we should make this lady Secretary of Education or something.
