I think that one thing that could be done to improve our schools is that at the end of each term a teacher should be evaluated by the class. This should be done in a manner such that the anonymity of the students could be maintained. If a teacher received an evaluation of boring from more than half of their class for more than two terms they should be fired. Why? Because they are wasting the time of our most valuable assets as a society. After all if our children are not educated (and let’s face facts if they are bored they are not being educated) then they will not grow up to be able to reach for the stars or even to be able to simply find the sort of work that will give them joy and prosperity.
