    and because they don't have to...computers "spellcheck" for them, and when there is no spellcheck they haven't got a clue...!

    kids nowadays are not taught nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives etc at school,
    they're not taught how to set out essays neither...

    In the US, it's mostly seen as the student's responsibility to come to school, do the work, and learn. If you fail a grade then you have to repeat it, if you fail an assignment or a test then it will reflect on your grades and such.

    But there are some teachers who for whatever reasons avoid failing a student even though their performance in class is below standards.
