Last week, our friend Claire told us about a phenomenon in her child’s school – parent’s giving their middle school aged kids $100 for each subject they received an A! Some of our friends were horrified and could not believe parents were offering to pay up for good grades. Others thought it might not be such a bad idea to offer a cash incentive. So – what do you think? Should school work be tied to money? Does it cheapen the idea of ‘knowledge for the sake of knowledge’ if a child’s motivation is money? Or is it just a taste of the real world?
