DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- DeKalb County Schools are thinking of paying employees a bonus to show up for work. 

The district says they're having problems with employees being absent, so interim superintendent Michael Thurmond suggested giving small bonuses to those with perfect or near perfect attendance. 

It would apply to about 3,500 low-paid employees. The program could end up costing the district over $1 million in incentives. 

What do you think?
