Students Who Don’t Try
Yes, I understand that many of the kids at my school come from extremely dysfunctional families that make their lives harder than mine. I know many of them are never supported by their parents, and I truly feel bad for them, but that pity only stretches so far. I go to that school and bust my butt every day for straight As. I know some of the credit goes to my parents for teaching me to take pride in hard work, but even if they hadn’t, I don’t think I’d have Fs and Ds and an array of detentions under my belt. I’m sorry, but we all have to work with what we’re given, even if that means bucking up and setting down the Xbox remote to attempt actually doing homework.
