What exactly is a teachers job when it comes to middle school? I understand not begging for homework, they should be responsible enough for that already. What about when a kid is simply not getting it? Say math, something that you have to get to move on to the next chapter. Should a teacher notice that a child who is doing ALL the homework, ALL the classwork, but failing ALL the tests and quizzes? Should this teacher try to find out what the problem is on her own or wait until the parent notices? Should the teacher care at all?
