  • Reviewed by Former Student on November 14, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • at some point you must learn that a teachers study plan might not be the same as a childs study plan... you have to think, why are the students not passing or dropping out, it doesnt always mean you have a bad kid, a trouble maker, or just a dumb kid. they may blame it on the students, but what if its not the students fault, what if it could be the teachers fault. i only say this because i am a former student of university high school and i had the options of either dropping out or moving. i dropped out of high school on the first day of the new school year, 2009, and i only did so because i have a very different kind of learning method instead of trying to learn 2 chapters of knowledge in 1 week i think it should take just a bit more time.
