Some people think that schools should reward students who show the best academic results, while others believe that it is more important to reward students who show improvement. Discuss both views and give your opinion.
Giving encouragement is a necessary practice in every education system. In some countries, a form of awards is often given to those who achieve the highest level of academic attainment. While others consider it is more significant to reward children performing well in their progress. In my opinion, it would be better if schools appreciate students getting the scores
On the one hand, there are a variety of reasons why rewarding students who endeavor to study and make good improvements is essential. Firstly, when others recognize their efforts, children may want to study harder and achieve higher results. If their attempts are ignored, they may feel disappointed. As a result, they may easily give up their progress. Secondly, receiving awards also makes students happier, which allows them to have a good grasp of any lessons at school. For example, children with happiness are more energetic and enthusiastic, so they can pay more attention to teacher’s lectures.
On the other hand, I believe only toppers should be praised. Obviously, it will be not fair to toppers if students who getting lower results are also acclaimed. Children at the highest position always have to exert themselves to obtain the best results, so they are only persons deserving to be congratulated. Furthermore, they will reduce their motivation if they’re not rewarded. Everyone, especially children, wants to be celebrated as succeeding. If not, it will lead to their depression.
In conclusion, both students who get the best scores and those who make good progress should be praised. However, it seems to me that only children showing the best performance should be rewarded by schools.
