mikesd81 writes "A local Austin, Texas ABC affiliate, KVUE, reports about a manager at a GameStop that was suspended for instituting a "games for grades" policy. From the article: " Brandon Scott says he started a unique new policy in his store to promote good grades in school but now his employer has sent him to detention for speaking out of turn. Scott says he's been suspended by GameStop in the wake of his unconventional "games for grades" policy at an Oak Cliff store. " Apparently, on his own, Scott decided to stop selling video games to any school-age customer unless an adult would vouch for the student's good grades."
