   You always hear the story of parents blaming the teacher for their child’s bad grade. This occurrence highly irritates me.

   Some parents might believe if the students are failing or cannot get high test scores, the teacher should even get terminated.

   Yes, instructors should be held accountable for educating their students, but that’s not the problem.

   It is up to the student to learn and be eager in his or her own education. Judging teachers by the willingness of someone else to learn is wrong.

   And, honestly, passing at BHS is easy. All you have to do is apply yourself, put in the time, and do the work.

   One thing that especially grinds my gears is when students and parents blame teachers for failing their children due to their teaching style.

   If other average students can succeed and learn, then you should be able to as well.

   Students are supposed to be able to adapt to different teaching styles and not get everything handed to them. College is going to be a rude awakening for someone who is spoon-fed.

   If a certain teaching style doesn’t help you connect with what’s being taught, all you have to do is study, or ask a teacher for help one-on-one. I know most adults at Burlington would not have a problem with it.

   These people should stop spending all their time complaining and actually put it to use.
