A bunch of high school students are surprised and angered to discover that you can’t graduate from school unless you pass all of your courses.
It’s obvious that they feel merely being enrolled in a course means receiving credit for it.
“Honestly, they could still put us in the classes now,” Tripp said. “Them refusing to do that just lets us know how much they really don’t care.”
It isn’t like they could earn credit in a week.
I know that teachers and the education system catch a lot of flack, and deservedly so. However, there still are teachers out there that care, and this is an example of what happens when a teacher who cares holds students to a standard.
This attitude of high school graduation being a right is one of the reasons why our nation is so ill informed.
