Parents Upset When Class Fails Math Except TwoA large group of parents of came to the high school to express their concern after 23 students failed math, out of a class of 25. They met with the principal Javier Solis Martinez, to discuss the math teacher Gabriel Sulu Martinez. Their children are enrolled in their final semester, and at the end of every semester there are dozens of teens who leave the school because they cannot pass the tests. The parents pointed out that more than 50 students had to discontinue their studies last semester, and they blame the teachers. They say it is understandable when a few children fail, but when it is 23 of 25 it is the fault of the teacher, and a majority of these students who are approaching graduation are at risk having their studies stalled or ended.
