Quote from a book... this is long but really good.
"... Ask them [students] to write about something, and they can’t make complete sentences, much less spell anything over two syllables. [...] By the time they’re in college, it’s gone too far. They’ve had twelve years without disciplined learning, and they don’t know how to apply themselves. They haven’t learned to study or to pace their work so that projects get completed on time. They fall asleep in lectures because they expect to be entertained, not educated.
I’d teach, damn it! I wouldn’t baby them or play games with them. I’d push each one into doing the best work of which he or she was capable. By the time they finished a class with me, my college prep students would be able to handle university work. [And for those who aren't college prep?] The others would graduate with a knowledge of what disciplined work is all about. That should stand them in good stead, no matter what they decide to do."
