In my response I just said that ideally there shouldn't be any students that fail, but that in reality there will probably be a few that end up failing.


In hindsight, I think the biggest problem was that I didn't really elaborate on that, on explaining why I feel that it's not realistic to expect a 100% pass rate. I don't know of a more detailed explanation on that would have made a difference, but at least it would have made it clear that I wasn't saying that I would give up on struggling students.


My approach has always been that if a student is willing to try, I'll do what I can to help them. But that if a student won't put in the effort, I can't force them to learn or care, but that I'll be there for them when they make the choice to try.
