Paige and Bailey recently asked this question to students and teachers. Here are some of the answers they got.
Elana D. No, because education is a privilege.
Mr. Naventi: No, who will for for it?
Elsa L: If you get paid for good grades, you will be focused on good grades.
Damari: Yes, because teachers get paid to teach so we should get paid to learn. It is much more work to learn than to teach.
Antonia: Yes, because students work hard and it can help us in life.
Rafer: Yes because we can get things with the money.
Mrs. Cormier: No, because education is a gift, it's something to better your life. Where would we get the money?
Dakota: No because school is where you go to learn.
Niki: Yes, it will influence them and help them with college.
Connor: No, school is a privilege not a job.
Emi S: Students should not, because it would be like a bribery.
Mrs. Arnold: No, it is not a job, we give kids the benefit of an education. Do kids only want to do something for a prize?
Jacob: No, learn just to get the knowledge.
Ravjeet: No, a waste of money! No money for smarts!
Juliana L: No, because it is our education, not a job.
Marti C: No, it's our duty.
Stella B: No, because you should go to school.
Julian B: That's a stupid idea...
Mrs. Ramsay: No, because they are already paid by having teachers, materials, and a great building.
Destiny: We are here to learn.
Mrs. Eline: No
Anna S: Yes, because they work hard for nothing. They should get something.
Emily M: Yes, it takes up our free time.
Bella: No, it's a natural thing.
MacKenzie: Yes, because it would help with students buying supplies.
Evie: No, because the government could use the money from paying kids to go to school for better schools, and it is already a privilege to go to school, because in some countries some kids can't go to school.
Zoe: It might be a deduction from teachers' salaries.
