    Stress. Some people really do not like doing tests, exams, or anything similar. They do not always know how to set down what they are thinking, perhaps because they are not good at grammar, spelling, etc. Such people often do well at something practical, such as assembling a machine, but they find it difficult to write down how they do it.

    Crazy home life, bad teachers, some sort of disability, too much pressure, maybe a mental health issue.

    Poor reading comprehension skills, poor understanding of math or English, learning disabilities, ADHD, chaotic home life (and lack of sleep), student being responsible for younger siblings (and unable to study) because parents work long hours, stress, depression

    personal psychology. mismatch between student's learning style and the school's teaching style. cultural mismatch between student and teachers. possible need for special education. malnutrition. emotional and/or physical abuse. there are probably several others that I haven't thought of

    I believe it is the discipline problems of a few who take valuable class time away from learning to attract attention to themselves. Take the phone away from every student at the door, get rid of the bad actors and don't let them drag those who wish to learn down, actually teach what is needed and knock off the PC crap and you'll have a whole new crop of students who actually can survive in the world.
