What do you think of teachers' attitude to actual research?
Research suggests that class size does not have a great influence on learning but that the quality of teaching does. Yet the teachers constantly demand smaller class sizes and resist any attempt to measure the quality of teaching.
It's nice to know that these people are looking after my kids.
something that both parents, students and teachers want, how can you complain.
how many should be in a class then?
i reckon if the pupils can hardly fit in the room that's more important
systems to handle teachers in now coming...belatedly
So, lost, you're with the teachers on research. If the teachers and parents want it, that beats research. NEver mind that it may cost a lot of money and not have the intended effect.
Teachers are belatedly allowing exceptionally bad teachers to be removed - these are the absolute nutters that even us as kids in the 60's could not understand how they were allowed teach. As for the commoner garden bad teacher - they should not get worried - as long as they can act sane, they will be allowed carry on as before.
