depends. Does the child have an undiagnosed learning disability that the school has been ignoring for the entire year? In that case it's the school's fault

all 3 . One the teacher  and parent should be on the same page. They should be getting student extra help whatever. Student needs to take ownership and want to pass. The student needs to get focused and apply himself. Depending on students age they should be seeking help on their own.

I think it depends.  It could be one or all.  Every situation is different.

Or if the child just does not understand the work and teacher does not help the student.

The child.

ETA:  Personally, I think assigning blame is pointless...it's more important that everyone involved pull together to help the child raise his/her grade.

Depends on the age of the child. Elementary, it's the parents. Middle or high school, It's the student.
