Motivation or exclusion? That’s the question which is being asked at Silver Spring, Maryland’s Eastern Middle School. The school organizes parties – with dancing, games and pizza – for straight A students, allowing students with Bs and Cs to come to the events after classes end and the pizza is gone. The practice has become yet another issue to people who worry that exclusion from the event might lower students’ self-esteem.
The media is fixated on “income equality,” and appears to be against success being rewarded for hard work. The ideas of participation trophies and wealth redistribution become more and more popular with social engineers. The oddest part of the story, though, is the fact that a reporter asked two of the straight A students, who attended the party, whether the party was fair. One of the kids said he didn’t know, and one said she could see how it might be, but that it was good motivation. This type of action could actually instill guilt for success.
