I completely disagree with the statement that students should be able to evaluate their teachers. To begin with, students are rarely at an age when they can maturely, effectively, and objectively evaluate the work ethic and efficacy of their teachers. Secondly, if teachers knew they were to be evaluated by their students it would reverse any power dynamic and require the teacher to simply bend to the whims of students and their parents, who would then hold power over that teacher’s job future. Therefore, the idea of students evaluating teachers would be a poor idea for giving unnecessary power to ineffective assessors with potentially selfish motives.
