Top Ten Reasons Why Kids Should Get Paid to Go to SchoolBlueTopazIceVanilla This is almost every kids' dream. This list is just a joke, but I made some reasons true and some reasons weird or fake. Enjoy! :)
The Top Ten
It's true. Without students, the teachers will get no jobs meaning no principal, meaning no school. The students are 75% running the school and keeping it live while the teachers and principal are 25%. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Without us, the teachers would be unemployed! - PetSounds
No students means no school. Teachers are employed because of students. Teachers can't teach without students. - madoog

To all the dumbasses saying "Kids shouldn't get paid for going to school because it isn't benefiting anyone and it's benefiting them" have blatantly never been even remotely close to a school. School has never and will never benefit me at all. I honestly have to say I've learned more about life from my drunken uncle's rants than I have sitting at a desk in the corner of a classroom for 6 hours. And to the half brain celled retards saying "School is good for you because it helps you with your career", what the hell are you talking about? No one is going to ask me during a job interview what the square root of 69 is or how King Henry the 8th killed his wives. Well actually, I stand corrected, it does help your career if you plan on becoming a mathematician, scientist, historian, or teacher, which very seldom do people turn out to have that career. And last of all, the morons that say "School does pay you, but not with money. It pays you with the benefit of learning", can't handle it ...more - anthonyfallone
To some people, school might not feel like a job. A kid doing their math homework isn't helping our society, right? But think about it; kids are the future generation. Their job is to be smart, so that future generations to come are smart and we have a functioning society with educated citizens. Don't you want us to have a bright future? Isn't that a job? Not to mention since many teenagers have depression, doing anything feels like a lot of effort. Being paid to find the energy to learn when your mental illness has made it so you don't have the energy to do anything is amazingly difficult, and kids should be rewarded for that. Teenagers totally should be paid for their "high school career".
We always work on stuff but never get paid. Totally unfair. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Are you saying students are slaves? 😂 - OnionListsV 12 Comments
My parents wasted their money buying markers the class would never use. They also bought sticky notes we never use for anything educational. The only things we do on them is what we draw when we're bored. The trees were wasted. Their money was wasted. School is a ripoff. - CinderpeltandCinderheart
My school requires Sharpies and highlighters every year, and we never use them. It sucks because my parents paid for them, and wasted their money on crap I never have to use. Absolute bullcrap.
It's true this time. Some kids have stuff like window cleaner and trash bags on their lists, stuff that the school, district, and superintendant should buy. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

There are lots of teachers. One tells you this, one tells you that. They have a different rulesets. But the most important thing is the bosses giving you money after you work. So that would mean middle + high school students would get almost $7,000 and pre-k plus grades kindergarten through 5 will get about $5,500. Add that to gifted classes and special needs. That's a lot of money we're missing. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Since the government has more money and the teachers get paid (they hardly do any thing) we should get paid for doing it 75% of the work and we take papers home for home work 25% so 75% + 25% =100% of the work.
Instead of spending all that money on bullet trains we can't even ride until we're 18, or on banks with insulting customer service, they can use it to pay us the hard-working students. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Instead of using it to build some stupid wall nobody even wants, what about paying us, Donald Dump? - CinderpeltandCinderheart
Yes the do cause is the truthV 11 Comments
Well it sucks because we don't have a choice, and the teachers get paid and they can take a day off if they want but the only way we get a day off is if we are sick, and we can't quit school like they can quit their jobs
If you got paid, then everyone would actually enjoy it. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Not really. Everyone is already going to school because they don't have a choice. They don't need to pay the students because everyone has already attended school, and it wouldn't bring any more students.
Most students already attend school - OnionListsV 9 Comments
Sometimes school is just hard, and a pay day would really make us students happy. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
They don't realize how hard it is and how much it affects our future. I can keep up since I'm a straight A student, but most of the students are having problems at home, being bullied etc. Not everyone has time to study. the least they could do is give us some money or something.
And whats the point of paying students just because school gets harder."
Look,school is harder, and you have to stay up late just to complete harder and more assignments.
And the harder it gets, the more you can put your energy into studying instead of complaining."
Do you even understand?
No, it gets easier. There is just more homework. - KaboomV 5 Comments
School is a full time job. Kids go to school and work hard for the same amount of time most adults do. I do have a point!
It is cause we go to school for about 7-8 hours and so do adults even if it's at night
It would teach us what it is like to have a real job and get paid
Kids are basicly getting locked up in a building and aren't getting anything in returnV 9 Comments
Where their money is going, their heads, eyes, ears, and nose are going. If they notice bad stuff, they will immediately stop it. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Let's all blame the government, guys, instead of thinking about our own poor work ethics! Yeah, that's a good idea! Let's make it into a list!
And mothers. - CinderpeltandCinderheart
Then they can blow the money on candy, pop, useless toys, or even worse, drugs and alcohol. Yeah, good idea.
Someone dumb enough to spend it on drugs and alcohol wouldn't even have the grades to get enough money to do that. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Yeah, we can actually get money from school grades then use that to get BETTER grades in collage and things like that
Right. You seem like you do need to go to school if you don't even know how to spell "college". - RidiculousName
A fair point actually.
This one is actually something that would be true. The teachers do want us to go to college, so why don't they help us be able to pay for it? - CinderpeltandCinderheart
This should be true. Getting paid for our good grades and attendance, from Pre-K to 12th grade = paid for whatever years of college.V 4 Comments
That is true
OK. that's it.Who is/are this/these visitor(s) ruining the list? Whoever you are show yourself, and go away.
Or just hire someone to do all the work for them.
MONEY! =)=)=)=)=)=) - schoolsucksV 3 Comments
YAY - schoolsucks
No school is gay if kids get paid theyll want to go to school
All teachers do is hand kids papers and sit at their desk for 6 hours
No, our job as kids are WAY easier than teachers' jobs. My mom is a teacher, so I've seen behind the scenes all the work she has to do, and how she has to put up with a lot

This is a Fantastic list - oldfashionedmickeymousecol1995
The kids would wanna go to school so so much they would wanna work hard
The people creating these lists are awesome.someone should send them to the government
Your not paying them for good grades your paying them to go to school it wouldn't
matter if they got good grades or not.
I need to get some ideas for my debate at school for this topic and you gave me the perfect idea.
Now your parents don't have to buy every. Single. Thing. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
No you would get money for low and bad grades only (just an estimate) for b+ and up would you get paid
