why should students be paid for good grades

There is no reason for kids to get paid for good grades. Millions of teachers make a living out of teaching kids. They are for the most part teaching them everything they are going to be tested on. If they aren't then they would be fired. Anyway if a kid gets, oh, I don't know maybe a 75% score on their score. That means that they aren't paying attention to 25% of what the teacher is teaching them. 25%. Do you understand how bad that is for a child. They should be paying attention to at the very least 95%. Would you consider a 95 on a test a good grade, I would. So it that is the minimum and you are going to pay them for that. I don't think so. Stop pampering your kids. Mmhhh, Mmhhhhh. Students should be paid for having good grades. Students should be paid for having good grades because, if they know that if they do there work and get good grades, then they know that they shall be rewarded with money, where they are allowed to buy things that they would like to have and would like to keep.

School is very important in a young persons life but schools shouldn't pay them to try harder in schools to get better test grades. Kids should try there hardest without the need of rewards and money. This could to lead to fighting and bulling with other kids or young adults. What happens when the money stops? And what will they do with that money Paying the kids for grades is good incentive and will most likley improve their grades and attendance but when the money runs out is will have permanently damaged their will to learn, they will most likley expect to get paid and when they dont they will no longer have a reason to learn, there love for learning will all but diminish. Students should love learning not be bribed to learn, the whole point of school is to get a good education not to earn pocket cash. Have you ever wondered what they do with that monney, they might bribe the teachers to make there test scores higher, it will only promote cheating. What happens when the money stops?

Why celebrate mediocrity what we expect of our children normally? My son (8) I agree that children should NOT be paid for good grades, because they are expected to do their best! Pride in a job well done should be what motivates our children, not a video game or a carrot in front of their nose. Self motivators those who take pride in their work are the ones that the others will end up working for one day!


No. You pros fail to realize what school is about. School is about responsibility and teaching those who are willing and able to pass to do so and teach those who do not want to pass to have average capabilities. What does it say about a school that gives money to their students in order to convince them to have better grades? Desperate. What does it say about a child who gets money in return for good grades? That they are not focused on what they should be focused on in school. If students get paid for good grades, they would take school as a way to earn money! Of course it will help them focus. But on money not school! They will develop a bad habit. When they grow up, they will want to get paid for the ways the do for a living. Who will pay them then? Students should not be paid for good grades. Doing well in school is expected and cash rewards should not be given for something you're expected to do. Schools do a great job of recognizing students who do well, so there is no need to pay kids who do well in class. No, students should not be paid for good grades. Students should be paid for the work they put in and that doesn't always add up to good marks. Some kids can study all day, practice and try while other kids put in little simply because the work comes easy to them. It's wrong not to reward those children who may struggle but still work hard, at least, in the same way. Study is students' own business. Students need to be aware that they study for themselves, not for parents or teachers. It is because children can get more knowledge and have an opportunity to broaden their scope that they should study. Offering money for grades can only degenerate such self-discipline into a deal of transaction. Once students are accustomed to the money for marks, they may feel like working for others to earn money, instead of benefiting themselves. What happens when you hand a student like me incentives for good grades? Yes it'll temporarily encourage me to boost my initial grades, but I will loose the passion I had for learning. I wouldn't be going to school for an education I would be doing it for extra pocket cash.


What happens when I leave high school for college? When I'm no longer getting money for my good grades. Because I wouldn't have that passion for learning, why else should I give a shit? Especially if I'm no longer receiving that precious dough that replaced my fiery passion to learn. I am a kid myself. I go to school. I exert myself not for good grades, but for a good future, and that is what is imperative here. The intrinsic want for resplendence, adulation and prevalence will win out over our desire for money every time. Who is providing us with this money? Our parents? They already pay for our education. School is a privelige, and students need to learn that they will need a fuel other than their parents' wealth as they become more and more independent. Grades don't always reflect competence, either. A child who is inherently bright needs to learn there is always room for advancement, whatever his/her A+ report card says. Students will believe they will get rewarded for everything they do. This is not the case. Some tasks that need to be done won't necessarily have a reward. If students are taught that getting good grades and working hard results in money, they will assume they will get paid for all good things they do. This can create false presumptions, and it's just not a good idea to go there. No i dondt think that kids should get payed to get good grades because some kids could be in a situation where they cant pay their kids for good grades because they could not even have a house. Some kids candt do well in school because there might be something that their worried about outside of school and itds causing then to do bad or no matter how hard they try they can not do the work to get straight ads. Some students can't preform well in school regardless of the effort they put into it while the students who are fast natural learners have it coming easy to them. It can also have students open up more to bribing and cheating to get the money. The goal would be on their mind more than the content they're learning about.
