Not all teachers were models in their field.
No, they were sugesting he was failing because of the teacher.... the bullying thing wasn't what I was talking about.
Even if jr is getting bullied...looking to blame the teacher, when the teacher may not be aware, is also negligent. Kids are sneaky little shizez sometimes. Bullies are like bank robbers and banks are like teachers... sometimes, no matter how many precautions they take, a bank is still robbed. You can't blame the tellers because it happened during their shift. Now, if a teller ignores procedures and doesn't report a robbery, then yes, there are reprocussions.
But the entire 'see if the teacher messed up BEFORE we see if its junior dropping the ball is simply trying to deflect the blame away from the obvious 'if you had control of your kids, this wouldn't be an issue''
