Quote

Rewards aren’t necessary to promote learning, but they may be necessary to make kids memorize a list of facts for a quiz. Rewards aren’t necessary to make kids concerned about the welfare of other people (indeed, they tend to undermine that concern), but they may be necessary to make kids shut up and do what they’re told.
