and if they aren't getting the grades, a parent might be more concerned to actually see progress by going to those teacher meetings, and finding out why their student is doing all they can in the classroom... but getting sucky grades. 


you don't think sh*tty teachers play a part? at all?



unfortunately, there are sh*tty teachers out there who do not have best practices. a bad teacher can directly result in bad grades, and a lack of knowledge on a subject. yes, if a child is motivated, they can learn and do things on their own, but they would not have that support they need. and really, that intrinsic motivation would come at a later age, and not in those crucial younger years.

i could see some teachers being azzholes about their grades, esp. in HS

on the flip side, I could also see some teachers simply passing children b/c they know what is at stake. so the child would have the grade to keep benefits for the family, but not actually know the knowledge.

i could see pressure from admin to give certain students (athletes) who are on assistance good grades to not only keep playing but receive benefits for the family.

I can also see some upset parents storming the school and confronting teachers about grades.

It's a bad position to put teachers in as well.

I can see the positives and negatives in this but the overall problem with kids, I think, is the way school is structured today. The whole school system needs to be revamped.  I wish school was set up the way I picture it. It would be a win win for kids, parents and teachers.

It sucks. Not all kids are getting the education they deserve out there, nor the help they need to excel in their classes, especially if they live in pooer neighborhoods cuz the administration can't afford to help them all. It's not fair to the kids but sadly it will continue unless we overall the educational system. Tying tanf to their grades is messed up. When my mom was on it I didn't have the best grades freshman year but I tried my damnedest with no luck. It would've made me feel horrible if our benefits got cut off cuz I didn't understand my class/homework.

Agreed.  the whole system needs an overhaul but....we know that "they" really ain't tryna help these babies out here.  If  they were money would be no object for inner city all schools.  Teachers would be allowed to actually teach the class as best as they see fit.  I still get mad when I think of that Oprah episode when they did the school exchange with the kids from the burbs and the inner city.  They were like if we had all this we would do so much better...we'd want to come to school.
