Usually its laziness that causes failure in school.  In 10th grade I got
3 Fs on my first report card. One in Biology.   After my dad beat my as*
with his belt I turned all those grades around and took the prize that
year for the best grade in Biology.  You can say the leather turned my
life around.  I did not care about school at the time.  If kids don't
care then nothing will help them.
