When to downgrade?

My 2nd clarinets are struggling with a certain part in our music, about 8 measures. We have been working on it for a week. I literally have to make them practice it every day and after about 5-10 minutes they start to get it. |
However, the next day I have to make them do it again...........and again.......and again......
I can guarantee that if they try to play it right now, they will completely flop.
These same kids (which are great kids!) don't show up to before/after school sectionals, do not care that they are failing even after I call home.....
So, is the music too hard? Do I need to find easier music for them? Is there something I can do to help?
