Here is an interesting article from The New York Times about who is to blame for a child’s failing grades and how some states are starting to “grade” parents.
Not quite sure what I think about it yet.
While there are bad teachers and bad parents, at some point, the responsibility of grades falls on the student. Even with excellent teachers and amazing parents, there are going to be students that fail classes and they need to suffer the consequences before they learn.
I don’t think this is the answer, but what do you think?
