You are paid, with a wealth of knowledge. You now can take that knowledge to the world at large and, use it to make money if you like, help others, start a family, whatever you want.

If the real grown-up world worked so charmingly you'd not hear anyone complain so go fucking study.

Students should get paid for their education, my friend in Finland at the moment is getting paid to go to college. My reasoning for this probably because the government probably saves money paying students to go to school rather than supporting drop-outs on welfare.

The economy is moving into a knowledge based one, improving on the amount and number of grants will likly benifit us in the long run by allowing for more social mobility and more graduates letting us better compete in the long run. If so, then goverment can tax the additional income into the country and possibly make a profit off of their investment since 35% of a few billon or trillion a year will pay for a decent amount of grants and then some; even after considering the time value of money so long as the turn over isn't too long.

If everyone has a degree how does that make for better competition. Whats the difference if there are twenty highly educated people applying for a job or two hundred highly educated people if only one is going to get it. It seems to me to be a waste of everyones money (especially tax payers)to fund insane amounts of peoples education if no one can get a job with it. What we could do with all that tax payer "education" money is put it towards funding entrepreneurial enterprises or in other words encouraging people to start their own businesses and you don't usually need a masters to do that.

The businesses of the future, even small ones, will be knowledge based and the labor competition will be amongst countries. The number of degree holding workers in this country compared to others will be a major factor in what type of insourcing we can do.

The service and distribution based economy can only be so big, and even it is being monopolized to some degree; causing higher barriers to entry.

We should get paid to go to schol because we go to school 8 hours a day and on Friday should be our payday. I think it would be a good idea to get paid to go to school.

Well considering your lack of grammar I would say it was too late for you anyway. Education is the most important thing, without it we would still be in the stone age - you should see yourself as privileged. In so many developing countries all manner of people would give anything they own just for an education, look at the reality in front of your face and buck-up, if you want money then get a job.

2 years ago | Side: Shouldn't get paid

Yes they should. If you think about it most kids don't want to be there and its 6 hours a day or more. Thats a part time job. They should be paid at least minimum wage.

Students work hard to get to the grade they are at and could get easily discouraged when they see other students skipping school. They might even start acting like those students that they see are skipping school. However, if the students that skip school are paid to go to school they would most likely start going back to school and become better students. The students that already go to school regularly would be rewarded for not skipping. Also, not many students can easily afford to buy what they want, when they want. If students got paid to go to school, that might help them with problems at home like bills that can't be paid, being able to afford a college, and be able to learn how to handle money more wisely.

we should get paid because we are doing work like adults. it would only be fair because people who ditch school need a reason to come and do their work.

My biggest objection to this is that there would be no way to create a fair system for payment. Sure our grading system is based on the idea that A's are the best (in this argument should receive the most money) and F's are the worst (maybe these students should have to pay the teacher). However, I've experienced plenty of times where my grade didn't properly represent the effort, learning, or valuable skills that I gained in a class. Were there a way to accurately measure these facts and then provide payment based on this I might consider it.

However, I would still be hesitant, because we generally pay people to do things that we are either unable or unwilling to do. I personally believe that there are many people who would like nothing better than to go to class and learn every day. Where would we draw the line on paying students? Would we pay them in elementary school, high school, college, for the rest of their lives?

What exactly is a student producing? you pay a person who makes a product or provides a service, does a student do either of those things? who does a student work for? In other words who is going to write the check (ie. pay ) for these students? Is it the government (ie. tax payers or in other words your parents), or teachers. should they be doing their job out of the kindness of their heart so you can get money.

If students were getting paid to be in school, which is a luxury not a right, what would be the incentive to ever leave? And if no one ever left who do all the other jobs that need doing?

Don't get me wrong I hate the school system, I think its completely unnecessary and full of propaganda. I don't like it that students and their parents get in trouble for not going and that our society looks at people who choose not to pursue half a lifetime of schooling as somehow lazy or undedicated but I think Its ridicules to ask for money for something that is a service provided to YOU. If anything you should be paying for it.

I have never heard anything so abusurd. If anything kids should pay the schools. They should get part time jobs in high school...which would teach them responsiblity and that most things that are achieved and acquired come from hard work. If anyone in the work place is underpaid its our teachers. And if anyone should get money it should be them.

Like another poster said here.....you get paid for producing a product or service.......students do neither.

I totally agreed that students shouldn't get paid to go to school because this is not a job yet. School are just to gain some an education. If for any reason we pay students to go to school they will just staying for ever in school so they can get pay for it , in other words ( a job at school).

In conclusion, we may not let students get pay for attending at school because the wont appreciate the education, just the pay.

Some students don't even want to go to school for they can see so many things that they could be doing with their time such as Xbox. It is one of the only things that boys at my school talk about. Paying someone for not liking school isn't setting a very good example. However I could understand it if schools began to pay small amounts to people for outstanding academic achievement or effort.

Another reason is that England is currently in a credit crunch.

So on top of the shrinking school budgets you wan't to pay students to go to a free public school? If something like that ever happens and they have less money one year and students don't get paid they'll feel less motivated to go versus the idea that they need an education. Even if the students get paid they parents will be in charge of the money they receive. It makes no difference. The promise of a better future should be a payoff itself.

Education is a privilege. It takes money to hire great teachers and pay for supplies and other school expenses.

It's one thing for school to be free, but to get paid for going to school is absolutely ludicrous.

Anyway attending school is both a privilege and an obligation. If you live in a western country and are under 17 years of age, chances are that the law requires you to attend school, and whether or not you like taking part in the educational process makes no difference at all. Yet being able to attend school is also a privilege, because if you were living in any number of Third World countries, you would probably find yourself slaving away in a sweatshop instead; so count yourself very fortunate. You should not expect to be paid because you attend school, but you can expect to eventually receive a reasonably well-paying job, if you take your education seriously.

Students definitely should not be paid to go to school. One who is going to pay for this , and 2 what are we showing them by having to get paid to go to school. When you get to college your paying to go to school and they could care less if you go or not.

they should not get paid it hard to even pay for what needs to be paid for. not wasting money that we don't have for something stupid like this. when I was in school my teacher gave us candy and other stuff for being good not by asking for it. it was coming out of her own pay. I even told her that she does not have to give us this for being good when it my job to be good anyway.

As much as I'd have loved to be paid when I went to school, in all seriousness I don't think being paid to go to school is a view I'm likely support in today or yesteryear's climate (as I can't speak for the future) my current view at the moment is... No. Students shouldn't get paid to go to school.

School is to teach students that the importance of knowledge is what will get you rewarded with payment in later years when you seek and find a career that will pay dividends.

A school ethos is if you learn 'stuff' whilst in school, you get a job, with this job you will be eligible to get paid- whether this is true or false is another matter.
