Many American kids received passing grades for doing nothing.

In school, there was little motivation for working as passing grades became an entitlement.

Fearing low evaluations, and not having contracts renewed, teachers will hand out passing grades which students don't deserve.

After graduation, students have learned to expect entitlements for doing nothing. They learned this.

Ask any teacher this:

* If you gave an assignment to research, and create a five page essay paper from it,--how many students would do it correctly if at all?
* If you gave a thirty question test covering two book chapters. How many students would get at least seventy percent correct?
* $2487 will be given out equally to three people. How much will each person get? Don't use the word divide, or allow a calculator.

This is one reason kids do nothing.
