Yes students should be paid to go to school, for the simple fact of students work harder then some employees at some jobs. so this will be a good thing for student all over.

Students should not be paid to go to school. Why?

One. School systems are already facing drastic budget cuts. How would you expect these districts to be able to afford to pay every student for going to school?

Two. Education is mandatory by law. Paying for someone to go is pointless, because there is already an incentive in place: go, or be in trouble with the law.

Three. Education is reward enough. With it, you can succeed in life an end up making much more money in the long run.

Why should students get paid?
the teachers are the ones teaching we just sit and listen, we shouldn't get paid to get taught that's really backwards, it would be nice, but it's not needed.

All citizens in a school district already pay school taxes, it would be pointless for adults to pay taxes for their children to attend public school and then have the school turn around and pay the students for attending. School isn't difficult, as a matter of fact the education system in the United States was ranked 13th to China in the early 2000s, try attending school in a place like Iraq where a second language is taught for fluency by 5th grade.

Payment is not deserved for an activity simply because effort is put into it. Many people put large amounts of effort into playing video games. Does Pro think that they should get paid as well?

Payment is given to reward *valuable* labor. Doing your homework benefits only yourself.
