  • Yes. i believe students should be rewarded for learning.

    Yes. I believe students should be rewarded for learning, but only in certain forms such as incentives, or motivation. The best way to reward a student for learning is through scholarships. Scholarships are great because they give students who are not financially able to afford college a chance to experience higher learning.

  • Yes, in some instances kids can be rewarded.

    There's a saying that "learning is its own reward." But I believe that kids can be rewarded in some ways, as long as it doesn't become more of a bribery scenario. As an example, kids who do well in school might earn stickers from the teacher. I had a teacher who gave us credit we could save up in exchange for small gifts. Giving kids a bit of money for As can help reinforce the importance of good grades, too. It just should be smaller things, not large rewards.

  • Yes but don't get carried away

    Yes students should be rewarded for learning. If they show great strides in learning they should know this is a positive thing and be rewarded. I don't think that students should be bribed in order to learn or receive gifts that are not in line with achievements. We don't need to spoil kids either.

  • Students should be rewarded for learning.

    Students should be rewarded for learning. There are a lot of pressure placed on students in the classroom to succeed at learning their subjects. I think it is good to reward students when they do a good job because this will only push the students to continue to do a good job.

  • Yes and no.

    The reward for learning is usually the good grades and having a great GPA to enter college with in hopes of having a scholarship. Beyond that I do not know if students really should be given a reward for doing something they should want to do anyways. The education already benefits them.

  • Dress for success on the inside too

    Rewards for success or loss should be a parents main objective. Rewards do not mean presents-- it means showing the respect that whatever they've learned deserves. "Rewarding" in my eyes isn't just about presents. It isn't always about parties for a good deed-- it's the "I'm proud of you" moments. It's the pat on the back and the positive reinforcement for learning something new that will propel them in their lives.

  • Praise.

    Yes, students should be rewarded for learning. No, that doesn't mean that they should get a new gadget every time they answer a simple math problem, but it is important for them to know that good grades and working hard mean a lot. It's hard to see beyond the letter or number.

  • Yes

    Nearly all students received a myriad of rewards from teachers throughout school. In elementary school, 70 percent of students said teachers offered candy for good performance. Other treats included prizes, certificates, extra recess time, class parties and stickers.In her study, endent on rewards and realized that was not such a good thing," Davis expxternal rewards failed to show much positive impact on grade-point average. Overall, students thought rewards were good motivators. However, contrary to expectations, the students most motivated by rewards were the ones to cite them as bad. "Maybe those students felt depelained.

  • Showing Ability To Apply Oneself To Learning Is a Valuable Socio-Economic Skill. . .

    What do we go to school for, If not to learn? There is far too much contemporary emphasis upon the education system as something more of a "popularity contest" than on a place where one actually gains an education!

    Imagine were we all to be extremely popular at school, But also extremely poorly-motivated to learn (or, Maybe, Just unintelligent)? Somehow, I doubt that the economy would thrive, That businesses would succeed, That technology and innovations would be developed. . . Were we all just focussed upon popularity at school, As opposed to learning.

    Children who are highly motivated to learn, And who demonstrate academic ability, Should be rewarded. These students are showing valuable employment-related qualities, And social skills. Think about it. . . A young person who is able to apply him/herself to working hard, And achieving in school is a young person who has shown a degree of emotional maturity, Responsibility, And a positive work-ethic.

    Besides, Learning in school is something that can be taken into later life. Brain surgeons do not get to be brain surgeons by failing to learn about brain surgery! Those students who show aptitude within school for learning - whether it be one subject or, In some cases (polymaths) many - may be the innovators, Inventors, Creatives and problem-solvers of the future. Of course we should reward this!

    Not, By the way, With foolish incentives (like cash, Or sweets). Rather, With praise, Nurturance, Support and encouragement. With acknowledgements of the students' talents and/or hard work. With scholarships, And opportunities for further advancement. Because - and this is the most important thing to remember - even children born into disadvantaged circumstances can work their way out of it, If they are given the encouragement and incentivised to do well at school. Education can be a great leveller, Because our intellectual ability has NOTHING to do with social class. Kids born into families reliant n welfare handouts can be just as academic as those born into rich households. So, With the right support and encouragement, Kids from even the most disadvantaged of backgrounds can reap benefits from applying themselves to developing their skillset whilst at school, Or, Later, University.

  • Incentives, Incentives, Incentives.

    Students need a sort of incentive to work, Or they'll become lazy and not do it at ALL. Not saying that they should receive a gold star for a maths question, But give em' a break once in a while. Kids need something positive to BOOST their productivity. Some people need a gold star though. . :)

  • They are bad

    Have you ever thought about how much material schools like ours are wasting? Think about it, Around 40 students receive an award in assembly every week close to the middle of the year, And how much paper and laminated sheets do we waste? That is an estimated 1300 sheets of laminated paper each year. Now that’s crazy.
    It’s not only a waste of material, Also we are not being sustainable because of us using paper from trees and lamination from plastic. This also is producing pollution in our environment and we can’t forget it is also a waste of money. Schools already spend hundred of thousands of dollars on projects like building new classrooms and buying new supplies. There is no need to make a bigger debt then there already is.
    Think about what we could do with all the extra money if we just STOPPED making awards! We could put the money towards new sports equipment like soccer balls, Afl balls or even in educational purposes. We could put the money towards something everyone enjoys, Not something everyone dreads

  • No, they would be pushed in the wrong direction

    Students should not be rewarded for their own achievement, because it is something that should be expected that they should achieve in school and in learning, parents shouldn't pay their students for something that is already being payed for them. Of course, reward does not only mean money, but with the reward system, students would gradually be dependent for a reward in order to do things in life daily. Only depending on rewards will let students lose the real goal of what they are trying to achieve. One example of this might be that if the child is aiming for an a in the grade, and might be rewarded, they would be aiming for the reward, and not for the grade, which is not what the parent was wanting out of their child. Depending on the reward system may only have an effect for the first few times, but however, it will soon lose its magic and the students might be back to their regular selves.

  • Yes, it's for they're own good

    As you can see students don't like school. So you reward them for at least trying. So, students need the opportunity to be rewarded in some apparent way. But, not the kind of reward where they get a pizza party just for getting an A on a math test. So, yes I agree with A's, B's, C's, D's, and F's.

  • In my opinion students should not get rewarded for learning.

    I think no because students might think since they get rewarded for learning they don't have to behave. Or if they move schools and that school don't reward learning then they might not even try. These are reasons why I think students should not get rewarded for learning at school.

  • Yes, but change is needed.

    I believe that rewarded students for their learning can be helpful when applied correctly, however it seems that (from all the schools I've been to) that teachers reward their students based on improvement. This can be negative as students who don't behave well in class are rewarded more when they are good, compared to when a good student is behaving normally. This definitely seems to impact on their behavior through the years, and as a result, I've seen some of my best behaved students make many wrong decisions :(

  • Some students need an incentive

    Student work hard to get good grades and just acting like oh ya u got an a+ no big deal makes students think if i am not rewarded i do not have to try. Rewarding students would encourage and be a good incentive for good grades and working hard. So yes i do think students should be rewarded.
