When considering the choice of whether schools should pay students or not, schools not paying students for good grades is definitely the choice. If students are paid, they will experience lower scores and practical problems in the classroom which will escalate to problems outside of school. Also, paying for good grades can lead to a reduction of the child’s self-motivation. If my claim is not listened to, the future of these innocent children will become ominous and undetermined. Most parents want the best for their children; however paying children for good grades will only diminish all the amazing opportunities for
In the opinion of Edward Deci and others, they all state, "....the child's enthusiasm for learning may be dampened." This shows that without the payment, the student/child may not do as well as they could've done so before without the thought of being paid. Thus, leading to a drop in their grade. In the long run, they may show lower academic performance, Then they wouldn't have any enthusiastic feeling and may have the thought to quit school. In the future, the action of quitting school would soon end up in regret and the former student won't be knowledgeable and wouldn't know what to do for their future.
To sum it up, paying student for good grades can lead to practical problems in teacher classroom. When considering the choice of paying student for good grade or not, the choice should definitely be not to pay student for good grades. Kids should not be paid for good grades because it gives pressure to students to inflate their grades, can lead to external motivators that may be affective and well intended and kids should be satisfied with their own accomplishment to success. For those who say paying for good grade is something every parents should do, it is not because kids are being bribed to do well in school. School is their own job and the own

In the future, the action of quitting school would soon end up in regret and the former student won't be knowledgable and wouldn't know what to do for their future.
Is suspending a child really the best thing to do when they get in trouble? How can they really be educated from not being able to go to school for a few days? Will suspending kids better their choices in the near future? When schools suspend children, what good is it really doing? You would think it’s helping with their situation, that it’s changing their perspective while helping them find ways it could have been solved, but some kids don’t think of the solution in the blink of an eye.
I do like the idea that it helps children receive a better education but as I said I do think it should only be for a selective few of children. I don’t like how it is pulling money away from local schools in ones residence and brining it into a new district. The article states
Students would believe this since they may feel that their teachers may give them so much homework with such a little time period. Some might even have sports events of other school related things that may not give them much to any time to do their homework. As this does seem like a problem, teens should work this out with their teachers rather than going against what their teachers would want. In other cases, students also say that they feel the need to cheat because teachers and students have high expectations for them and want them to get good grades, putting too much pressure on them. “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).
If you fail, you will go to summer school. This is a commonly used phrase used by parents to threaten their children to work harder. Some think that summer school will raise their child’s grades, but is going to summer school really the best option? Summer school does not benefit students because it cost money, causes stress, and makes less time for friends and family. One reason that summer school does not perk students is it comes with a price tag.
The solution I am proposing is a whole new school system. The government will have to stop and realize the issue and invest time and money ifficently to help the school. It will difficult to get rid of testing seeing as that is what colleges look at to see if a student qualifies however if we pass a law or tweak the ones already in place we can change the norm for the evaluation of a student all together. The Society has slowly started to "teach to test" after the No Child Left Behind Act was enacted. The test may help with evaluating some qualities in a child but it ignores the qualities a student will need to succeed in real life situations.
If teachers would stop just handing out suspensions the students could talk to somebody and figure out the whole story, also If suspensions would decrease the number of student dropouts would decrease greatly and most kids would get a good education and a high school diploma, If students just got suspended after every time they did something bad it would increase the likelihood of something similar happening again. The whole suspension thing is good on some occasions, for instance someone brings a weapon or drugs to school, but suspending students sometimes just does not seem like the right option and it does not help the situation at
