Objetivo

Let’s start the lesson with some reading. You can read it on your own or play the audio and follow along.

Once you have finished, you can go to the next step.


Should students get paid?

Did you know many parents buy gifts or give money to their children when they get good results at school? The way I see it, these young students have a strong motivation to study and achieve at school. Should the government also implement something similar to motivate and help students? I really think so. Here’s why.


A reason to study. Students don’t always understand the importance of studying and doing well at school because they don’t think about the future, they only focus on the near future. By rewarding them, they have a clear reason to study more.


Help to keep studying. Many outstanding students come from poor families. It’s really sad when these students cannot afford going to school and start to work at an early age because their families need more money just to buy the bare necessities. Giving these gifted students some compensation for their good results would help them finish their studies and maybe be able to study a career.


It’s not unfair if it’s done well. Some people might argue that it’s unfair that some students are given money and others aren’t, or that some are given more money than others. But I really believe that if effort is taken into account in that sistem, as well as learning disabilities and other factors, then it doesn’t have to be unfair. In fact, it can be even more fair than when they’re adults and start working.


Students at school need more motivation to help them to study more at school. I am convinced that rewarding them when they do well will help them have a better start in life.
