LOL! Now ain't that the truth! It's kinda funny that it hasn't dawned on them yet that as the givers of the gold star that they're not able to get it within the context of the "system" that they now have. It's gonna be interesting to see when they're on the other side of that gold star and if the gold star can actually be awarded more than once to the same person.

I'm kinda wondering if all the kids even understand the significance of the gold star. The kid who didn't get the gold star understood the significance of it and that was a big part of his motivation be it right or wrong. The problem was that he didn't have the good character & maturity to go along with that motivation. But I wonder how big of a part the gold star is gonna play in the evolution of this "nation" or will it even?

I guess I'm still having a problem with this ideal of "selflessness". I don't think a kid should have to be altruistic. I think that's a catch 22. I do think there can be win-win and that be okay. I guess I haven't really changed my position have I LOL! I guess I still don't feel that there's anything wrong with working for a reward. What he brought to the table benefitted the community. Why he brought it to the table would have benefitted himself. I don't see the wrong in that. The only conflict as pointed out up thread was his character.

If there had been no prior "negatives" (including character, integrity, & maturity) on the part of this other kid and his motivation was out of need for money for college as he stated, are people saying that his belief of "win-win" is wrong?
