Spending money in order to do homework

School children in disadvantaged residential areas should in the future be able to be rewarded with pocket money for doing tasks in their spare time.

With a digital learning platform, the children must be able to access tailored tasks, who adapt to their level, and then get a cash reward when they have made them.
