Getting my report card was stressful for me. I knew if my parents did not like my grades I would be spanked. Over my entire life, I got close to 10 spankings for bad grades. Strangely, I never got two spankings for bad grades in the same school year.

Definitely. If I really tried, that was one thing, and no punishment was needed. But if I wasn't trying, or let assignments pass by without doing them, or just didn't study, or showed the teacher some attitude, my parent's didn't blame the teacher for that. They did what they needed to do, which was bend me over and spank me good and hard. That got my attention in the right place, and quickly.

Oh, and if I gave a teacher some attitude, most of them had no hesitation to take me out to the hall or keep me after class and swat me with a wooden paddle.

The only time I didn't get some accountability was once in the sixth grade, when some buddies and I were caught cheating on a spelling test, and all we had to do was stay in at recess with no further punishment.

Otherwise, messing up with grades sure got addressed.
