Quoting I'm His Amy He's My Rory:" I think this has a lot to do with it's now not "acceptable" for anyone to tell a child they've failed ... [snip!] ... to accomplish because it will be handed to them they give up trying because why work for something that will just be given. "
Absolutely. It's fascinating the amount of blamet that's put on a teacher now for a child not doing what they're supposed to be damn doing.
You can bet if I get a call from the teacher that my child isn't doing their homework-- that's my child's responsibility, not the teacher's.
I also have a huge issue with standardized testing being the be-all end-all of "success".
