This idea of students needing to fail, it seems counterintuitive, right? But what if it’s actually in the best interest of the student? Why should a teacher “allow” a student to fail a class? While teachers are charged with ensuring that all students learn and grow academically, there are times when it’s just not possible for a student. In this case, letting a student fail gives an accurate picture of their abilities and deficiencies, and allows them to get the proper support they deserve.
