Re: “Pay For Grades

There are many problems that could arise from using money as a motivator: Kids might bully and threaten other kids to do their homework, to make money. kids may try and "work" or even threaten teachers when money is involved. When we're talking in the thousands of dollars, who's to say that kids and teachers won't be in cahouts? If the teacher gives a better grade, the kid might actually pay the teacher off. That's teaching kids "fraud." In some situations a child might go home and get physically or verbally abused for not getting certain grades because the parents have now actually become partially dependent on that "grade money" as a source of income. It all sounds extreme, but not too long ago "paying for grades" sounded extreme and so did "shootings in schools." (For that matter, so did "paying for water.") With all the risks involved, will this model even work? ---I can't post the whole comment here for copyright reasons. Please find the rest here:
