• Adults get paid, So should kids.

    It doesn't matter if school funding is tight enough. Whoever pays staff should also pay students. Students may commit crimes if they are broke and don't get paid, Including selling drugs. It doesn't have to be just parents that should pay them or buy them school supplies. Getting paid doesn't have to be a pay job, It can be anyone and everyone. It doesn't matter if school is a privilege and not a job, It doesn't even need to be a job at all, They can have a payroll too, Just like teachers, Faculty and staff. A weekly pay would be great, They only need to get paid mild to moderate. Preschoolers and Pre K gets none and don't need to because everything is free, Donated and paid for them. Weekly payroll for Kindergarten should be $5, Grades 1 through 6 $10, 7th and 8th grades $15, And grades 9 through 12 $25. That can, Do and will make a difference and prevent borrowing and getting free money from somebody else. High school students in America going to the dance have to pay to get in and some don't have money because they don't get paid to go to school, Their parents don't have money and won't stop going crazy spending it all at once instead of spending it wisely, They refused to help them get a pay job.

  • Not everything in schools are free.

    Not everything in school is free, School lunches cost couple dollars, Even in Elementary schools. Some schools are not free for kids to be enrolled in. School trips in Junior High and Middle Schools cost money to go on, You may even have to pay your bus fare. If we get paid to be be educated in school, Join clubs and participate in sports, That would be pretty sick and make a difference, Reduce the risk of incidents, Etc. Adults get paid to go to work and kids should get paid to go to school because they've been going to school 6 to 7 hours a day, Usually 5 day a week for 10 months every school year for them. It will help adults save some cash and their parents don't have to worry about being the only ones giving them money for supplies. They help them pack their lunch because they don't have money to give them to buy school lunch. Not all parents are created equal in amount of money In Junior High or Middle School and High School, Everyone has to pay like $40 for entry fee to get in to the dance and some got in without paying because they don't have money and their parents don't have money to give them to help them pay to get in, Not everything in school is free and students should get paid to go to school because of it, In case parents can't always be the ones giving them money to pay for all the school stuff. Some 16, 17 and 18 have a hard time getting a job because their parents refused to help them get a job like go to the interview with them for those has has special needs and/or parents has a kid who is autistic because he/she can't come up with something positive, Even if he/she does won't be able to remember it because of memory loss. Right after graduating from High School, Some Seniors in America attend a Senior trip and it totally expensive, It cost around $2, 000 to go on a trip. Even if students should not get paid to go to school, Should only get paid in mild to moderate, $10 for Elementary kids, $15 for Junior High / Middle School students and $25 for High School students weekly. Some would say that High School students should get paid just $30 or so monthly, I say that it's still not enough, They need to get paid more than that. High School students attending a formal dance has to pay $40 to get in and Seniors have to pay hundreds of dollars to ads in yearbook, Graduation stuff and thousands of dollars to go on a long distance trip, So just $25 weekly in school academics alone and getting paid to join clubs and play sports in mild to moderate amount should be enough to make a big difference. You need money for higher education, Especially tertiary education.

  • Students get paid why not kids

    I think kids should be paid to go to school. By 15 we would be able to afford to go to university, so we could study and get a job early. We would all have jobs at 20, good hard working jobs, so we definitely wouldn't get lazy. And last of all, more people working, more work achieved!

  • Parents get paid why not kids

    We never want to go to school but if we get paid we will love it and we can also help poor and schools all around the world and if you are poor this can help you learn and grow at the same time so come on people help others

  • You get paid to go to work why not us.

    You get paid for your job, right? Then why can't we get paid for ours. We sit at a desk for hours working just like any other office job. The one thing that's different ( besides you being adults) is that you get paid and we don't. You get to choose what job you want so you shouldn't complain about not liking it. On the other hand for most children their parents choose their school, unless they have to go to some technical school ( nursing and other stuff like that). So you get paid for a job you choose but we don't get paid for a job that's forced down on us having us have multiple jobs instead of one. It doesn't seem as fair now, does it? And what you call learning and educatin I call memorization and being forced what to think and if we think about anything else you get punished. So unless you consider getting your freedom to think what you want forced out of you as payment (which is cruel if I do say so myself) students like me don't get a payment.

  • Why the fuck not your already being forced to go

    To that one that said no because school is a previlage,WTF NIGGA some dont want to have the prevliage,some just want to wait until they are 18 and go to collage to tell u how the job u want to be works
    might as well give them money for forceing them to be here and the no way in heck guy can go to hell

  • Yes! Students can't make money, yet they take time out every day!

    We go to school everyday with about the same hours you go to work, except the only thing you do is get graded on intelligence, somewhat like work, and it's made to make the country better so we can take care of you oldies, but we get nothing. We still have to buy lunch at the school, and field trips, but we don't get anything back. It's like saying "Want money? Wait from PreK to the fourth year of college to start making anything, and then you'll pay off all the debt you have from going to college anyway.

  • It will motivated kids.

    The thought of money would motivate kids to do better and not to miss class. Not just show up and get money but it should be based on time there and grades to encourage students to be there longer and do better in to school environment. This will help kids stride to do better

  • Definitely not it will be unfair

    Definitely not it would be unfair because even the bad kids would get paid and that is unfair the poor teachers will have no more money t paid for the water and important things for the classroom and it will be dangerous for the kids if they are dying of thirst and if the water all of a sudden it stops they working that can be dangerous

  • Who's going to pay for it? And it's a RESPONSIBILITY!

    Going to school is a privilege not a job! One must understand that you are there to learn, not to work. You are the one benefiting from school, not the teachers. They get paid for helping you achieve your goals in life. It's the law that you go to school and so getting paid for it is not only expensive, and unjustified, but also greedy.

  • School is a place for learning

    Schools have to deal with enough they don't need to pay 750 kids at least $5 a week if they do that then the school won't last long. Plus school is a privlage you go there to learn and your teachers help you mold your life so that you can provide money for yourself and one day your own family.

  • No way in heck.

    The first person to comment in the "yes" section says that paying students "Will motivated kids". Theres literally spell check, yet he/she somehow forgot all of their grammar skills. Its obvious THEY need some motivation to do well in school. If children were payed to go to school, it would take like six months for america to go bankrupt.

  • School funding is tight enough already

    Where is this money to pay students going to come from? Education is already one of the least funded things in America, and schools are therefore constantly having to make budget cuts. Living in places like the US, we have the privilege to become educated, seeing as the United States educates everyone, regardless of age, ability, ethnicity, social class, etc. So no, students should not be payed to attend school.

  • Education funds are tight enough already

    Where exactly is the money to pay students going to come from? Education funds are tight enough already. Sure it may motivate some students, but it's most definitely not going to motivate everyone. Living in a country like the USA, it's a privilege that we even have the opportunity to attend school. The US has acts like No Child Left Behind, and they also ensure that any child, no matter their ability, age, ethnicity, social class, etc. Has an opportunity at an education. That in itself, is payment enough.
