Are stars good or bad?
This week, teachers are making it rain stars. They’re given to students for anything now. So what is the purpose of these stars? The stars are supposed to be a reward for students who either step up, take responsibility, achieve academically, or respect themselves and others. The rewards for these stars come along the year; the first one was a pizza party, the second will be a movie, and the big one at the end of the year will be a trip to Bass Pro during the school day. Each prize costs a certain amount of stars which is why teachers hand them out for anything now. If you walk into the classroom on time, then you get a star. It has a good concept, but should the prizes be better or the amount of stars be lowered?
