"Failing grades" has emerged as a top media trend for today. Arising primarily from an Associated Press article on the affect of remote learning on education, the phrase has also been amplified by news outlets like Reuters, ABC News, the Wall Street Journal, among others.
"Failing grades" covers the sweeping increase of students flunking courses this fall. Many attribute this sharp rise in failing marks directly to the difficulty of adjusting to online and home-based learning for students. Nationwide, the Associated Press reported that the number of failing students has risen by two to three times the average.
