The knowledge of a student is based on numbers and letters. What if the efficiency of a teacher was also based on said numbers and letters?

I believe education is a choice. Yes, going to school is required by the law; but, we have the choice of investing in learning and furthering our education. If students’ opinions were valid in the evaluating of a teacher: one, students would care more about their education since they have an opinion; and two, the school would be more efficient.

It is hard for administrators and outside members to effectively evaluate a teacher when they are not the student. There is also the case where teachers act or teach differently when they know they are being observed- students know when this happens and it bothers them, knowing that the teacher does a poor job yet appears fine to the observer. An observer also cannot effectively evaluate the relationship and care the teacher offers the students. How a teacher acts towards the students is a very important aspect of school and learning- the more care a teacher shows, the more likely a student will care, but only a student can evaluate this. Also, if a student cares more, it is likely that student grades will show this.

It is common in a school that students all agree on whether a teacher should be fired or forced to retire due to lack of investment, teaching ability, or care for students. So, if students were able to grade their teachers, they would have more of an input in their education.
