If a student fails a class, they should have to repeat it. It's not fair to those who don't fail the class, to have those who do, move up with them and act like it's okay. It's also not good for the failing students. You want to give each student every chance you can for them to have a good bright future.
While this is true, if the students had to retake lets say math class they will just be repeating the same subjects and same equations that they did before. According to http://cop.hlcommission.org... the main reason why students fail classes is because they don't have motivation. Therefore, the don't try. The loss of motivation creates procrastination in students and causes them to not do there homework. That leads to students failing their tests and eventually the class.
Well, here where I live, an average college class, cost approx. $1,100 a year, so why are we teaching them that it's okay to fail, when really it's not!?! In grade school, kids just think that grades don't matter and they aren't motivated to pass classes, because they know they will get an automatic redo, and I don't understand why we're teaching them that failing is okay. In college, you don't get your money back if you fail a class, and you have to pay for a redo, so why are we teaching them that it's all okay to just fail!?!
