Don’t blame teacher for student’s choice


I am torn between laughing and crying over the letter, “Schools Can’t Set Students Up to Fail,” in which a parent went all the way to the School Board to complain when her son failed a high school ceramics class.

The parent writes that her son has “always struggled in art” and even went to an occupation­al therapist. Ceramics class is not required to graduate from high school. It’s an elective — that means it is a choice. He didn’t need to take the class, he made a clear choice to do so. Not so wise when you’re bad at art.

He needs to accept responsibi­lity and be held accountabl­e.
