Credit for Good Behavior

Some schools in the UK have implemented a credit system for students. They are using it to help low-income families get their children involved in after school activities, but what if it was used for all students? What if students were assigned credit by their principals and teacher and could cash in those credits to attend school events, play in school sports, or participate in school clubs? That system would teach students that those with good behavior get rewarded, and those who cannot behave properly do not get go participate in fun activities. I think this is a great idea. Good parents use a reward and consequence system at home. Why can’t we use it at schools, as well? It teaches students that they are responsible for their own actions and gives teachers a little leverage when it comes to discipline and rewards.

I am not perfect. I do my best to practice what I preach, but I am human. My mantra is, "DO NO HARM". I may not always succeed, but I will always try. My goal is to be a better person today than I was yesterday.
