I’ve known teachers to hand out passing grades to kids who deserved F’s, just to move them along and let them be someone else’s problems. Besides–! Teaching is so much easier when you just don’t care.
A public school teacher once confessed to me that she knew several kids in her class were cheating on tests and quizzes… but never did anything about it “because it’s just easier if I let it go.”
Who knows? Kids who are allowed to cheat might grow up to steal an election.
