Teachers shouldn't be responsible for students test scores (especially high school students who are old enough to ask questions and seek additional help). There are always students who are not going to do well, not because the teachers aren't teaching but because the students either don't want to do the work or from other outside factors.
At the college level, the teacher teaches however they choose and if the student doesn't do the work it's considered their fault for not seeking additional help. Parents don't go and complain to college professors that their adult child is doing poorly (and if they do it is in poor taste). Why can't we hold high school students to the same standards? If we are not giving them responsibility over their own grades, how are they suppose to be responsible for themselves in the future?
