No Child Left Behind

How would you respond to this:
"I really don’t care if I can write well or not, all I want to do is pass this class with a good grade and take my chances in college"?

"You won't have to worry about college if you can't pass my class. And if you decide not to work on writing well, you would be better off paying me the thousands of dollars that you will waste in college remedial classes. In the end, it doesn't really matter. My class requires to to write well. Either work on it, or fail."

Not very tackful, but direct and too the point.

If you can't write well, you won't pass this class. If you don't pass this class, you won't graduate from high school. In any situation where you simply 'take your chances,' you'll lose.

If you make the effort to learn to write well, you will have a chance at your future plans. If you don't learn to write well, you will have no chance at all.

You have complete control of whether or not you are successful.
