I shared responsibility of teaching Algebra 2 with a lady that let the kids do homework in groups of 3 Of course only 1/3 the kids in her class passed the final and 30% of her kids passed the state test. She got the smartest kids too. As she had an honors class which was about 30% of her students. One of her regular classes only had one student pass.
