Opinion: Lazy? Failing? Why.

We all have those kids in our classes who sit there and do absolutely nothing. They sit there and sleep or play games on their phones the whole class period. Then they have the nerve to ask their teachers why they’re failing. Which is honestly one of the stupidest things ever. They obviously know the reasoning behind why they’re failing.  These types of students want to play the victim because they won’t admit that they’re not using their time wisely.

I know in a way school is technically mandatory,you have to go –unless you want to get in trouble for truancy– but you can legally drop out on your own by 16. I think those students who are failing and don’t want to use their class time wisely should honestly just drop out. I know that’s mean to say but if they’re not going to do anything they might as well just leave. Some of the students have parents who want to blame the school itself or their child’s teachers for why their kid isn’t passing. In reality though, it’s their kids fault. The parents just don’t want to admit that their child isn’t doing their work and is on their phone the entire class period. Most parents want to act like their child is perfect in some ways because they don’t want to be accused of bad parenting. If a student is younger than 16 and can’t legally drop out on their own then they should really look into either talking to their parent or guardian about them taking them out of school or looking at other options for the student to get their work done and at least come close to passing.

Teachers come to work every day to earn some money, sure, but mostly to help kids learn. Then they have to deal with at least 10 students who just sit there and do nothing. It’s really disrespectful in a way.
