Students now days are struggling in schools because oftheir grades. They need something to motivate them or make them feel proud ofwhat they are doing to get high grades. Teachers and parents suffer more thanthe students but we found an easy way to solve this problem by giving money tothe students who get high grades. It is an easy way to motivate them.
They will believe that any good results needto be rewarded so they will work hard on themselves. Some people see it as negative thing and others see it aspositive. The negative thing is that by giving to those who got high gradesmoney it will not be beneficial to them because all what they are going tothink about is money nothing else. Money will not make future to the brilliantstudents but education will. Students will grow up by thinking that everythingis about money.
If parents keep giving money because of good grades assumingthat money is everything in their life. The positive side is for example me I would do my best on my school to getmoney of my own that I earned from school. To focus in school is a big thing,if you don’t focus on your school, paying attention so the result is that you receivemoney. Students now days of all ages love money the reason that they focus intheir lessons and getting high scores is because of money. They will want tohave their own money instead of always asking their parents. That will bebetter for them because their parents are not going to ask them from where yougot your money and something like that. Based on a study made byMassachusetts Institute of Technology, money is not a very perfect motivator.
If this task is simple, straight forward and involves only mechanical skills;then a higher pay would result in a better performance. However, if the task iscomplicated that requires theoretical, creative thinking and involves undevelopedintellectual skills; it would not be successful at all. Many studies have provedthat recognizing student’s accomplishments is the best motivator. Studying is student’sresponsibility. Students should study because they want to, not forced to, orbecause they are going to get money if they succeeded. It is also wrong to pullstudents into studying by using money as it gives them an idea that everythingrevolves around money which is a nasty truth that they are not supposed to learn it. Being paid to study teaches thewrong values to students.
They would have no sense of happiness because allthey want is more money.
