Standard teacher contracts make it difficult to terminate employment, but a performance based pay contract makes it easier to remove a bad teacher. Teachers who are unable to get the job done are replaced by another teacher who may be able to get things on track” (Thought Co.) Others agree that if teachers were held to a higher standard, and had something held against them, they would want to be more involved. Having proof that a teacher is incapable of teaching students everything they need too, they will be able to weed out the bad teachers. Giving teachers an incentive to get it together, and start teaching their students to the fullest extent should be implemented in more schools. Students will be more successful in their studies, and overall become more successful in school.
The proposition that ”if schools truly want students to be motivated to do well in school, then schools should be willing to pay students for their hard work,” contains logical fallacies. For example, “but why should students work (learn) for nothing” begs the question. Also these proponents assert the idea that students are doing job (learning) and should be paid for it does not follow or a non-sequitur fallacy. On the contrary, this proposed reward system will cause problems in the classroom. Rewarding students for good grades will decrease student’s self-motivation.
First of all, students should not be paid for good grades due to not needed pressure. The NEA claims : many teachers say, “Paying students for good grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” This means students are more likely to be in bad moods and have bad relationships with parents and classmates. If some kids get money and the rest don’t, arguments will break out. In a classroom, students are supposed to be respectful to each other in order to have and efficient working environment. The effect of this is, students will be stressed and annoyed or angry with them, if unable to raise test scores.
Children Getting Paid Children are the future of our society, they are what we trust in leading us from now on. So why are we not teaching them real world values during schools? Kids should be paid for good grades and attendance with money. This would help poor kids with their home lives , this would motivate kids and schools as a whole to do better, it would even give kids real world experiences with money. Children should be paid for going to school and getting good grades.
Obviously, that is not enough, therefore students will not have the motivation any more to get good grades the next year, because they want something more. I think students should get paid for good grades for several reasons, for example it will motivate the students to work hard, teach the students responsibility, and it will make the teacher’s job easier. Some students around the world are asking this question, “should students be paid for good grades”. Some students say yes we should, because students are working hard to get good grades, so they deserve a proper gift. Imagine the situation if the school pays the student who gets good marks.
It is hard to attract good teachers to poor performing schools for a few reasons, a couple being the low pay, poor working conditions, and the behavior that they have to deal with most of the time. It is understood that a pay raise cannot just be thrown at people with no effort or opportunity cost. Matthew Miller agrees when he writes that, “job security and tenure would be traded for this raise. The swap here ought to be that you take a risk with your employment and you don 't have to be retained if you 're not good at what you do. If you are good and you get retained, you get paid a whole lot more money” (A New Deal For Teachers).
“Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers). To improve this, teachers and parents need to be mindful of how their students feel and need to not push them as much. You could see why people might think cheating is okay and vital to succeed, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s wrong and that you should talk to your teachers about how you
Many people feel like those things like morals, manners and discipline should be left to parenting, schools should be focused on educational contents. Yet classroom observations often indicate that perhaps parents are not adequately socializing their children and are instead shifting the blame or responsibility to the school educators. Castellana E (2004) writes that schools often restrict freedom with a promise that they are preparing students for freedom later elsewhere. Castellana further contends that this sort of learning undermines peace because by enforcing submission, students cannot learn how to encounter and overcome conflict without
“Did you ever ask your parents why you went to school? If you have then you probably heard “It’s your job.” If that is true, shouldn’t you get paid for your job?” Students should not get paid for having decent grades since it will corrupt the scholar. The offer will make them inattentive and not succeed in college. Some of the reasons include children should wanting to get successful rather than the money at the end or paying students is leading to practical problems. Another reason is that when the reward isn’t offered anymore, will schools need to raise the stakes to keep students engaged in school?
Roque also had to get signatures from his biological parents to sign for his identification. Once this was finished he could begin applying to schools that would accept him and his grade point average. This made me realize that some students must put in a lot of work to further their secondary education. Also after reading the articles I reflected on the resources and services students go through to work towards transitioning. I learned that there are multiple job coaches, counselors, churches, disability agencies, and more that help students reach their goals in furthering into education or getting a job.
I also think educators are having the trouble with the rules because this is something new and challenges to their teaching skills. Educators have to grade students work entirely different and try to make sure the rules are working for them and the students. I believe as an educator knowing that these standards will not help the students stay focus with the materials because the state I am living in, the students are learning from a textbook, which make them complain about it and be confused on the materials from the book. From listening to my child, I believe as a parent and an educator, I think that students are not going to progress at the rate that Common Core believes that they should. I also think that students will retain their grade level because all of these tests they are taking to move to the next grade.
When these students plagiarize others work they render themselves unable to truly understand the material. The purpose of going to school is to prepare students for life and give them the necessary knowledge they need to succeed. If you simply copy someone 's work, it eliminates the whole learning aspect because none of the work is your own doing. Along with that, you lose the potential knowledge and skills that could help you later in life. The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education.
Their careers depend on it”. However higher pay does not lead to better student performance. “Performance pay may in fact drive more talented teachers out of the profession. Studies show that while money matters to teachers, working conditions are more important. Teachers want to work in supportive environments, where they have scope for creativity as well as rigor, and where colleagues collaborate, rather than compete, with one another.
(…) No. Not students. Teachers.” This may cause the principle to get involved, if the teachers are not providing a good positive example, then the students will just follow and never be able to learn and succeed. If the student is doing all their work and still not succeeding in their classes, the teacher who is showing such habits must be distracted from their job. Such as grading all the work assigned to the students.
