Being a teacher for over a decade gives a different perspective of why students drop from classes or fail their subjects. And, as a responsible school, teachers and / or school personnel are oftentimes required to meet the parents or the guardians to confer their students' school performance.
While it is an added work to checking exams, preparing lectures, enduring school stress and deprived sleeps causing dark circle for teachers to spend time to contact parents and discuss with them students' performances, the efforts are quite worthwhile.
With the parents - teacher - student conferences, everyone can do his/her share to making sure that students do well in school. As teachers, we can only be socially responsible of our students and parents are equally obliged to follow - up their children or ward at home.
