Is bribing children with cash incentives a good idea?
Is it appropriate?
Good, because action-result chain is clear? To get something, you should work; your work now is learning at school. And it feels like game (you are collecting scores = dollars), and games motivate humans. Well, money even more.
Bad, because it is false motivation? No interest in learning as such?

UPD Looks like my question is subset of this one: Is bribing children with cash incentives a good idea?
