    Those who pay for education should consider the benefits of a bonus system for students.


    We have been watching the Canadian and U.S. national level of education stall in the doldrums, as compared to other nations. Not shamefully so but irritatingly so. We need to reverse this slow slide.


    We, Western citizens of rich nation, are not serving our students well. We pay our teachers; we should consider paying our students, --- who, --- after a good service rendered by the system, --- a passing grade and more, --- would decide to pay their teachers in an appropriate way, by merit, a worthy amount. Teachers will make more in salary, once the low achievers drop out, and students will pay less, as their productivity increases.


    I think this beats indebting our students for years, as we are doing now.


    A bonus system, similar to that used in the work force would encourage students to learn better as well as having teachers organize better. All sales and human resource oriented people, as well as those who have worked in a bonus system will agree; a bonus system produces better results and productivity in the personnel than just a straight pay cheque.


    That fact, should tell all who pay for education, including students, that the best use of our hard earned money, --- is not to give it to teachers while indebting students, --- but to recognize that the thing to do, is to give it to the students, --- in a bonus system. That system would range from the low achievers paying full price, to the high achievers paying nothing.


    We already have this type of a program, for high achievers. They are given bursaries, grants, and scholarships. With this system already in place we can expand it to represent all students at all levels of education from daycare on up.


    If we refuse to reward learning for all students, the doldrums of our education levels will eventually position us in a whirlpool, in terms of world level education. Not a very smart thing for a nation to do.


    I hope you recognize the logic and reason of such a bonus system, and more importantly, recognize the benefits and savings that it would yield to all students and tax payers.


    Do you see the benefits?


    Regards

    What is a high achiever? Who determines what information is important?

    It is so curious that accounting is not mandatory in the schools when double-entry accounting is 700 years old. Accounting was on of the firstthings done with computers in the 50s and 60s. Now a $35 Raspberry Pi is more powerfulthan those machines.

    How many bright kids just need be be told what the good books are and wouldlearn more without the teachers?

    I see that you are one of the ones who was badly served by the present education system.

    May I suggest Webster's dictionary.
