A barber in Tennessee decided to give discounted haircuts to kids who read while in his chair. Jermaine Scott came up with the idea after noticing most of the kids who came in were glued to their tablets or other electronic devices. He started offering five dollars off the $15 haircuts.
“You have to educate your mind. Education is key,” Scott says.
The discount is offered every Thursday and the barber provides the books from the local library. Scott said growing up he didn't see the importance of reading, but now hopes he can impact the next generation.
