Ten Reasons Why You Might Want To Get Rid Of A Teacher

Interesting topic, no? The surprising thing, I suppose, is that very often percentage-wise it is not because the teacher is a bad teacher, but because the teacher is a good one.

In my recent research on teacher evaluation strategies, the meta-analysis has proven truly educational. Most teachers are encouraged to leave because of reasons other than bad teaching. In fact, because this is so hard to prove objectively, it is easier to find fault with things like style, dress sense, teamwork issues — equally subjective but something that the public feels it can understand better.

This will remain a stub for now. Some people might think I'm lining up the old missile launchers again.
