How many students do you generally have failing your class? I currently have four F’s out of 95 students. Some of these students have F’s in other classes. However, when I grade the tests, I’m pretty sure that I will have about 7 F’s (not including failure due to absence.) My mentor told me to try not to let it get over four F’s. My school does not like seeing failing grades. My concern is that the students with F’s show a severe lack of understanding of the material. It really wouldn’t make sense for these kids to pass this quarter. When I check grades for other classes, I see that some of the students who are failing my class are failing other classes too. However, some of them are doing ok in their other classes. I think some classes are easier than others though. (One of the science teachers counts tests as only 15%, so I see kids who are failing her tests have B’s in the class. The other science teacher seems more rigorous and has more failures than me out of the kids we teach.) I’m concerned that I’ll be blamed if I have too many failures but I’m not sure what to do from here! The issue with math is that I have some kids who do complete assignments but it’s incorrect, which is the reason that they have F’s.
