Students being paid to go to school: right or wrong?
Posted 4/30/09
i can't say if it's wrong or right ~ but i think being educated is a right ~ everyone should be educated ~ but from what can i see is some of the student who get free education ~ they don't estimated what they have instead of that they keep damaging stuff ~ so it deepens ~

Well, students are always being paid to go to school, assuming that they ARE GOING to school.
They get paid in marks, and in learning.

Paying with money however, is in some ways bad, other ways good.
It's basically bribing kids to go to school. Bribing isn't really a good thing to do, but hey, if it works it works.

But then again, kids really shouldn't be paid to go to school. If the kids who skip find out about getting paid for going to school, their going to come to school yes, but then what? Sure come to school, try to get some money, then what. Once they get enough money, they can just go out and skip again, but this time they've got more money to spend on who knows what. It's just a waste of money in my opinion.

"The children are the future" or so they say. Maybe funds are assurance that the future can actually become brighter . . . . . or not.

It's happening in the UK once you pass 16 you can leave school however, to encourage people to stay on you can get an allowance type thing.

I personally disagree with this, because if someone doesn't want to carry on with their education let them be. Plus I didn't need money as an initiative to carry on school till 18.

p.s. they brought in this law just after I graduated High School (figures damn them lol)

No you should not be payed to go to school, if you want to be an uneducated idiot and be a laborer for the rest of your life then good for you. Learning at a school is a privilege and if you don't want to be there then get out so those that do can get better service. The world needs its ditch diggers too.

Dumbest idea ever. Why the hell would you pay someone to get an education? The most likely argument behind paying students is that this "investment" will lead to a better society, but the mistake is that proper education does not get absorbed into a student like water with sponge. Kids/teenagers are dumb unless they want to achieve something in their life.

Major /facepalm moment in history.

Better solution: Exchange these unmotivated people to third world countries with their kids who are willing to do anything for a proper education and life. They might see the value of their spoiled lives.

Wrong. Sure i would've loved to have been paid for going to school haha, but by paying students to go is gonna bring in all the ferals who would just go for being paid and sit there do nothing and wreck everyone elses learning. Students should go to school on the motivation of having a well earned future ahead of them.

It would be better if it's like this:

>To those who stay in school, they get rewarded by money.
>To those who skips school, they get nothing.
>The child can choose to go or not go.

i don't think so... "they can't keep paying them forever..." - quoted from your article. i have no idea these things happen... most kids in our place knows how valuable education is and how important, a tool it is to have a better life in the future... school is something that some one chooses to be a part of... if some one wants to do some thing else let them do whatever it is and let them pay the consequences of whatever it is they choose. that's life... you do something and learn afterwards...

sixteen's pretty young to be off of school... i can't be off of school 'til i finish college three or four years from now...

No students shouldnt be paid to go to school. though certain compensations should be made (like awarding excellent students with prizes and etc.) a student being payed to go to school is like paying money to work--its illogical
