This claim is from the article “Should Parents Pay for Good Grades?”. The NEA article claims “Many teachers also say paying students for grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents”. Therefore, students may be under pressure to earn more money that other students. This can affect students by leaving them under pressure and stress to do better, which can cause their grade to be lowered. Lowering the grade of the student could mean possible problems with parents.
According to the National Education Association (NEA), “Many teachers also say paying students for grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” These pressures and conflicts can lead to larger problems outside of school. Instead of focusing on learning the subject material, students may focus only raising their grade rather than learning the academic material.
These disadvantages are only some of the negative attributes of paying students for good grades. Firstly, students should not be paid for good grades because it can cause practical problems in their classrooms. According to the NEA (National Education Association), “Many teachers also say paying students for grades leads to practical problems in their classrooms, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” This can lead to larger problems outside of school. Students may be stressed if they fail to raise their grades, which does not help them focus on their academic studies. Similarly, students can be angered if they do not receive a large sum of money, which worsens their family’s relationship.
First of all, students should not be paid for good grades because it avoids problems in the classrooms. According to the NEA, “Some teachers also say paying students for good grades leads to problems in the classroom, including pressure to inflate grades and conflict with students and parents.” This leads to stress for the child. The effect of this is that various health issues are the result of stress including high blood pressure. This can affect the child later on in life. This happens because stress hormones increase your heart rate and constrict your blood vessels.
If all the students are worried about is getting good grades to get those scholarships, then they are in school for the wrong reason. I believe that the point of going to school is to learn material not to take the easy route to satisfy yourself by getting good grades. I would rather fail something and learn from it, than pass with flying colors and not learn anything at all just because I wanted the money. Yes there is more of a reward for getting good grades rather than learning the material but what are you really getting out of it if you are not learning anything. Rags to riches, which means you might be the rag and at the bottom while you are in school, but if you learn something in school and work hard you while eventually be on the rich side of things.
Parents that pay their child for their above average grades say that since going to school is their kid’s “job,” their kid should literally be “paid” or rewarded as well for their hard work in school. This may have its benefits, but there are downsides too. When students are being paid money for good grades, they do not understand the main purpose of learning by losing their natural enthusiasm, not understanding or realizing the real “reward,” and not feeling the real satisfaction from their accomplishments. Regarding this topic, a student will most likely lose their natural enthusiasm for learning if they are being paid for higher grades. Psychologists Bob Brooks and Sam Goldstein argue that, “A child’s natural enthusiasm for learning may be dampened” when they are paid money for when they get decent grades in school.
Did you know that students who get paid for good grades will have lower,poorer, and unsuccessful academic performances than students that don’t? As a matter of a fact, paying students for good grades has many downsides and issues. This is important because the downsides could affect their future, and their relationship with their family, friends, and teachers. Some major reasons for my argument is that paying students cause practical problems in classrooms with teachers and students, as well as parents, and pressure. Another reason is that there are other ways to reward the student for good grades, such as the feeling of accomplishment and success.
“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?
The studies also revealed that most teachers left because of poor management support and tend to consider about their job stability and every one of these stresses make teachers leave before being baffled. Furthermore, Senteza (2001) support those who mentioned about inefficient management contributing to teacher turnover. When school not compensated in an impartial salary to the employment, less support and protection eventually the school administration will lose the potential teachers. Also, when the pay rates and benefits are more lucrative in another job it can impact teacher turnover happen in the school. So, school management need to coordinate and so had to encourage such teachers and train in them the liking of the teaching profession if the turnover rate is to
Moreover, Walker Tileston (2004) stated that the classroom environment especially that of the teacher’s influences their act of cheating during exams, their decision on dropping out and the decline of the student’s motivation and academic success. It was also concluded that the nature of their relationship and the student’s perception of teacher’s caring, support and competence are influences to the students. Therefore, students who have difficulty forming supportive relationships with teachers are at greater risk of school failure (Stipek, 2002; Walker Tileston,
