    Paying kids for good grades might get them to cram more the day before the test, but with craming, they won't remember what they learned a few months from then.

    Kids do that anyways. ADULTS STILL do that. I still do that in college.

    Exactly, so why pay them for it? That's my point.

    Because they'll actually cram? .. I'm not saying paying them will turn them into hard working saints.. But the added pressure of "I wanna get that game I've been wanting to play all month!!" riding on the grade, might force them to take the time to actually memorize what they need to know, so they can get those few extra points that make a B an A, that give them the money they need.

    I mean, that would have been my reaction in school if I had gotten paid. They're not gonna turn out evil monsters if you don't pay them.. but I really didn't understand the need to strive for my education until it was too late to really get anything done about it. Mayhap a motivator beforehand would have changed my need for it, because a piece of paper didn't mean anything to me back then.
