I wonder if any of our old teachers are on there...

let the kids be heard!

after all they grade the kids, let the kids grade them. many work places have '360 degree appraisal' i.e. where your minions grade you as well as the usual way round, so why shouldn't schools consider it?

of course this is outside the system and thus open to malicious abuse (and of course we are dealing with children, for whom that is a primary tactic) but the principle is sound.

i don't doubt there are many dreadful teachers who get away with being so simply because they have no come-back on their performance barring some vague exam results-oriented judgement

If you are a dirty old man, have bad breath or bo, it's useful to be able to find out...


Looking at our old secondary school, more teachers actually have positive ratings than negative.

Some I recognised

Miss West (Drama)
Mr Wigham (Geography)
Mr Gillet (now a deputy head!) Sometimes see him in the College Arms still, not sure if he is still a bit pervy with the six form girls...
Mrs Middleton (Art)
Mrs Ledger (English)
Mr Gomm (science)

clare said he was (and not just the sixth form girls). also had an affair with one of the other teachers. i forget it all, so torrid.

mr gomm was my physics teacher. stunningly boring. best ever lesson he spent telling us at great length about the star trek computer game he and his brother-in-law played all day one christmas

A good set of grades there. Such a shame that, back in the late 80's, he didn't bother teaching half of the A-level syllabus which resulted in his class getting a failure rate of over 70%. I got an "E", and I was one of the better ones.

I'd post that, but it was nearly 20 years ago and some miracle might have happened in the intervening years.

The benefits of evaluation. Even at Uni, most students value feel-good factor and easiness, so dumbing down helps the scores. Of course, external tests will reveal the shit, but they happen after evaluation, so who cares.... :D

A puffed-up short-arse with a disturbing fondness for putting classes of schoolkids in stress positions for lengthy periods. I'm still wondering what the physical benefits of that were supposed to be, unless it was designed to help us resist interrogation in whatever fantasy scenario was going on in his head.

It always amazes me that I'm actually literate. My schooling was rubbish.
