All of your teachers know, and they do not mind at all being ghosted by a shit student.

If your parents are anywhere from normal to tiger mom, you're in for a shitload of trouble.

As a teacher, it was easier to deal with a student who ghosted me than one who failed and came in at the last minute asking what they could do to pass (and they usually complained about it being “too much” the whole time, even if it was just to read a short story and answer a few questions). Though I was concerned about those who did ghost me. I even had one who, last I heard, her parents had COVID and she was starting to feel sick.

Maybe the Department of Education should issue a PSA to all parents: it's better if your kid just drops out rather than they be whiny little b*tches.
I may sound harsh, but to an extent the one who simply drops out at least understood the basic notion of no work = no degree. Still, it's truly baffling to see how many students don't realize that the amount of work required to get a passing grade is pretty freaking minimal most of the time.

And if there are any students reading this, considering how many FMLs we've had about dumbasses getting caught cheating lately: DON'T. CHEAT. We'll find out and all you'll achieve is to get caught and kicked out. You're better off just failing the class outright and doing it over next semester/year.

There is only one way through school - You put in the effort and work and do the assignments yourself and take the tests without attempting to cheat. The purpose of the assignments are to prepare you to learn the class material. The purpose of the school is to prepare you for life after school.

When you repeat the grade next year remember that how you begin your classes is even more important than what kind of effort you put in at the end. When you are behind on the subject you are learning, it is far harder to catch up than it would have been to stay current with the material as you go.

A few children and young adults have genuine learning disabilities in certain subjects. In cases where this has been diagnosed, at least in schools in the USA, the school is obligated to help make a plan to address those deficiencies.

When you first find you are struggling with understanding the subject then go to the teacher for advice and help. You will have to put in even more time and effort, but tutors or additional assignments can usually help you to learn. There are no shortcuts unless your family is wealthy enough to let their useless and lazy children coast through life on your parents money - But then you are obligated to spend the rest of your life dependent on your parents.

Finally, tell your parents. The longer you put that off the worse the ultimate consequences. Show some character and deal with the situation.

Don't lie about this. Just don't. They're going to find out eventually. THEY WILL FIND OUT. And it'll be a hundred times better telling them than letting them find out on their own.

So, maybe im not the best person to give advice since I’ve never failed a class but being open and honest with your parents is the only way. Sure they’ll probably throw a fit and be disappointed, but it’s better they hear it from you. And we don’t know what the context is. If you’re failing despite trying really hard & studying, that’s a different story from being lazy and not caring. If you simply coasted and ignored assignments, skipped class etc. then YDI
