"Literacy is one of the main components of a good education. At our school, we'll do anything to support reading."

Zack Perfitt - Paragon Academy Principal

Paragon academy in Jackson treated their students to a different type of reward for reading. The school came up with an interesting reward for the children, to promote reading during "March Is Reading Month."

The school's principal, Zack Perfitt, was duct-taped to a board during a school assembly.... and then taken outside for all the parents to see as they picked up their students from school today.

The principal tells us it was a little embarrassing. But he feels that it’s worth it for all the reading the students did. The students needed to read at least 300,000 minutes to duct-tape the principal. The kids exceeded that goal by almost 100,000 minutes.
