The Liquidity of School Grades
Kids and students are actually selling their work at schools for grades, which are not a liquid asset. How can we make it a liquid asset?
The idea of making kids work for grades is unfair. This must change. Work is still work, the cells still need to be fed, but grades are not a liquid asset. It's not about the right incentives, it's about the survival (especially in some regions of the world). The problem is that of making grades a liquid asset, that is bought not just by parents.
(I guess, the next comments will be about students making and selling NFTs of their grades. Making NFTs is simple, but making them in demand at scale is less so.)
(12 years at school + 4 years in a university) x 9 months x 20 days x 8 hours per day, is 23040 hours. At the world's average hourly wage of approx. 10$/hour, is $230,400. Now, one would just have to prove that some percentage (e.g., 95%) of that school education was crap and useless, and get back some of that money, just like people do with faulty products asking refunds.
My education was very bad and I learned most things by myself. I found that education is mostly day care.
If education taught useful skills perhaps employers would have requirements by grade. But it doesn't seem to work like that.
I would like to have a digital account of my qualifications and be awarded certifications of my skills that I have demonstrated. Perhaps if we took evaluation of human skills seriously rather than very poorly created curriculums which are just regurgitation of information.

In fact, if they taught useful things, people would go for education like bees for honey.
