Students Get Paid to ....

Not Fight.

If EVERY student does not get in a fight for the rest of the year, every student will get 100$

Thoughts?

Personally, I wonder if one student will do it just out of spite and make everyone lose the 100 bucks. Like a kid whos been bullied and loner, he will start a fight to make sure all of the people who bully him will not get the 100 bucks.

    If he didn't plan to return and move far away it might work for the kid bullied otherwise it would make it worse for him.

    I don't agree with the incentive because there are better uses for the money but to each their own.

    I'd think they'd all be in great moods in Philly now that they brought home the Lombardi trophy.  :p

    THe principal is going to pay it all out of her own pocket, unless they find a sponsor.

    Our elementary school offered to put kids' name in a drawing for a bike who perfect attendance at end of the year. I wrote them asking what about kids who can't help missing school like mandatory doctor appointments. They didn't do it anymore since I wasn't the only parent who complained.

    I get the reason why behind this initiative but honestly, I am gathering there's some hard-core, bigger problems going on at this school.

    Problems that cannot be cured or fixed by doling out cash.

    I'm sure if your kids was beat by a random classmate with lots of bruises last year, you wouldn't be making that response.

    I wouldn't be making the response that as part of being a decent, normal human being they shouldn't be beating the shit out of each other WITHOUT monetary incentive?
