Educators can help combat parental and administrative overprotectiveness by setting different expectations for students who can handle more challenges, said Michael Ungar, a Canada Research Chair in child, family and community resilience and professor of social work at Dalhousie University in Halifax.
No-fail policies are a reasonable response to students living in poverty, who have a disability or are dealing with complex social issues, but not for typical kids with a comfortable home life, he said.
