  • It's not fair.

    If adults get paid to do work why don't children? If kids get paid then more kids will want to go to school. It's worth all the hard work and effort. Don't you think? The more the students the more the money. Is that even the it works? If it is TAKE MY ADVICE! I am a grade five student and I know a lot. So once again, take my advice.

  • Kids should get paid

    Kids should get paid to go to school because they just waste their time. If they got paid they would know they are at least getting paid. Every day we wake up knowing we have to go to school and it ruins our day. Every day when we come home we are grumpy because we have tons of homework. If we got paid maybe we would want to go to school. If we got paid maybe we would work harder in school and get better grades.

  • If you give them something, they'll do it.

    Kids only feel more at ease when getting a reward. They will work harder and quicker to achieve that goal they want. They actually do the work instead of slacking off in class. By doing this they're building confidence. Some others use the money to help their family's with bills food and other needed materials.

  • Training for Future Jobs

    People are paid for training at jobs. Why should school differ, schools are basically training you for future jobs right? So why shouldn't kids get paid for putting all their time and effort into schooling? Kids need to get paid not only because they are training but because they are a person that need nutritional, medical, and many other services they need money to help support themselves and their family it would also help them learn about money and math at a younger age.

  • It's like getting paid training.

    Kids and teen, Including young adults learn in the K through 12 education stage and are usually in it about 7 hours a day for boring learning. They need to get paid but not a whole lot, I say just a weekly pay of $10 for Elementary students, $15 for grades 7 and 8, $25 for high school students, And none for preschools and pre K because they don't pay for anything and everything is paid just for them. All K through 12 students at all ages should also get paid 10 cents per point on their assignments, Projects, Tests, And quizzes, That should mean 48 cents on an assignment if you have a 4. 8 on it. High school students have a lot of thing to pay in school like pay to get in to the dance, Football games, Basketball games, And wrestling matches, But some don't have money at all because they don't get paid to learn, They can't work work, Their parents always have to be the ones giving them money but sometimes they run out of cash. High school seniors in America have to pay $100s for graduation supplies, Yearbook ads and $1000s for go on a senior trip right after graduation, They need to get paid because of it. Getting paid will help avoid becoming a robbery suspect, Burglarizing a place, Etc.

  • Yes they should get paid to go to school

    Well I know that it is definitely not fair for adults getting paid to go to work and we do not get paid to go to school. Guess what??!
    We have homework and homework and two words home and WORK!!!
    Hey it has the word work in it so it is not fair that children do not get paid for doing WORK!!!!!!

  • Well you do not know what the purpose it is that the child is saving the money they get from going to school.

    Since they are saving up some of the money for going to school you do not know the purpose of this. The child might be saving the money for many good purposes such as educational books and a lot more to do with education. So take my advice and pay your kids to go to school.

  • They should get paid at least in middle school through high school

    Students should be paid at least middle school through high school because it would be a great motivation for them and at least 5$ a day for perfect attendance, all work done, and great attitude because i know because i get ready go to my classes but when i'm in there i'm just looking at a person talk with what motivation the law breathing on my parents and my neck to get me to school

  • No way hosay!!!

    I think the main reason is cheating. Cheating is abominable and if students are getting paid to go to school this will just encourage it even more. Some students couldn’t care less about their grades if they are getting paid. For all they care, they could ignore the teacher all day long and still be earning money. They could cheat in tests if they earn more money for getting higher grades. Their parents wouldn’t appreciate this at all they could try all different things to try and stop them for example they could higher a tutor, take the money off their child or take away their privileges but it doesn’t matter what the parents do the child will not stop cheating until they stop earning money.

  • No, the teachers only get paid.

    They get goodies and surprises in baggies on valentine's day or something from the teachers and staff, but kids can't. No money! At Harrisburg Elementary, we try to keep kids money free. We award them with a fun eraser or cool pencil if they get A+, but we say no to money.

  • No, kids should not be paid to go to school.

    I believe that kids should not be paid to go to school. It should be an expectation that kids go to school and do their best. They don't need to get "rewarded" for going to school by getting money. If you start paying kids to go to school, they will want to be paid for everything they do.

  • Not necessary !!

    Its just not needed. What is the point of this ? Why should they be paid ? If you wrote out a paragraph on why they should be paid & why they shouldn't i'm sure the one with the title ; Pay students , would have really stupid backup and reasoning. If your kids are paid to go to school do you know if they are the ones doing the work or are they cheating ? If your kid isn't getting his/her own answers why should they be paid for "using someone else's mind"

  • Like no why noooooooooooooooooooooo

    So all you 84 percent pepole are saying im sorry i respect everyone opinion bt that menes youre paying a five yeare old to go to sclool that meanes youre paaying your five yeare old child to go to scholl for money not edu. Thats litterly what a 24 yeare old man gets paid like all youre kids are gonna do is is spend it on ice creame tht one doller can make a homeless person day,.

  • No, they should definitely not, It would be a disaster!

    This is stupid, it shouldn't even be a debate. The world isn't made to be paid money to do stupid crap like go to school. That's why we have jobs. Teachers are underpaid and under appreciated and should not have to sit with kids who wouldn't be listening if they were paid. I think teachers should get paid more they are educating us to become better people for our community and should get paid way more then their minimal wage.

  • No that kids shouldn't

    Because they will come even if there sick.Also they will come to school because they wont pay a tension to school.Another reason is because they will spend the money on thing they don't need. . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..

  • Bies and taxpayers

    Bies agenst students with learing disability such as dyslexia. Those children will not be able to get as good grades therefor they have a disadvantage. Also who is paying for those kids to get paid? The answer is taxpayers. They will have to pay for the 48 million students to get money for just going to school. Getting good grades should be a reward.

  • Where is this Money coming from?

    The taxes? The teachers? Your parents? This is SOOOOO not fair! The teachers are already not paid enough. Money doesn't just fall from the sky, does it?! What will this world become? Will we get paid to eat? Get in the car? Brush our teeth? What about brushing our hair?
