As everyone else has said, never give up on a kid without giving them a chance to prove himself. Many times, a kid just needs a change of scenery to right his/her ship. My career was littered with examples of kids who came to me with a bad reputation, but new surroundings, new friends, etc., brought about a new kid.

: Do you remove students that are consistently
: on the failure list?
: If a student transfers in with a history of
