Excellence Not To Be Rewarded?
SEE HERE Frankly the reason we are where we are is that we've been rewarding kids for nothing to make sure they feel good about themselves. Sounds good until you realize how ridiculous it is. Rewarding people just for existing sends them a totally unrealistic message because it isn't the way the world works. So when a library aide simply recognizes excellence because the same kid has won the reading contest by performing several years in a row. The kid was accused by one of the certifiable idiots of "hogging" the contest. Apparently excellence is not to be rewarded and those who insist on rewarding it get fired. If you want to ensure mediocrity spreads just keep doing this kind of thing. ARTICLE FROM PAPER
