Piece from Herbert Walberg from the Hoover Institution
You can go there to see what he has to say.
I'm going to talk about what happened to me as a kid.
So, I was paid ... for a while.... for getting As on my report card. Until it stopped. My sisters were still getting paid, but not me.
I asked what was up with that.
My parents said I was going to make all As whether they paid me or not.
Dammit, I was such a sucker.
In other news, I don't give the kids incentives to learn. I give them incentives to finish their work. Do a Kumon assignment to get iPad time. That sort of thing.
