"My Issue with Rewards" - Principal Chris Wejr

I have posted about reward systems and incentives in the past, and I still hold true to my beliefs. 
Rewards and incentives can be fun but do they really teach the students? What happens when rewards stop? Shouldn't that warm fuzzy feeling people get when they do something good or impressive be the reward? I know I won't ever get tired of that feeling and it won't ever go away, and I have complete control over it.

@MrWejr explains his "issue with rewards" in a post on his blog. He gives a great scenario, also.
