Learn each other

Every people in the world definitely has their drawbacks and abilities. Task for people themselves is to make it all turn as their strenght. So is the teacher, even though he was chasing but he/she certainly has his/her drawbacks. Then, should students allowed to grade their teachers ? Did it really work or just make an impression of impolitely attitudes.

Nowadays, people have to socialize with their society. Just like a school, where there are students and teachers, they should respect and appreciate each other. How to show our appreciation? Could it be just like saying Thank you, Good Job or something else ? No. we can do that like Habit 5 Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood which written by Stephen R. Covey (1989) in "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People". In 7 Habits, especially Habit 5 Stephen R. Covey told that "we have to use empathic listening to be genuinely influenced by a person, which compels them to reciprocate the listening and take an open mind to being influenced by you. This creates an atmosphere of caring, respect, and positive problem solving.". When a student grading his/her teachers, it doesn't mean that he/she doing something impolite or showing a bad attitude. It's all about examining.To make an atmosphere of caring and respect, we should listen each other, make it as our mirror and reflection, and then try to be better.

When people ask us, should students allowed to grade their teacher? It doesn't a matter actually. It's not make a distance between students and teachers. Indeed, it can become a bridge between students and teachers. Students absolutely have to learn from their teachers. But, the teachers also should to learn from their pupils. Critics, comments or sugestion, even more grades from students suppose to be benchmarks for teachers, whether their performance during class is really good or not. It can also show whether students really understood about their materials given by their teachers or not.

Learn each other, especially in a school, moreover in a class is surely needed by teachers and students. It can make a lovely atmosphere around the class. Every single person has to accept all critics, comments, sugestions and grades with pleasure and wisely. Because just wise people want to be a better individual in every their single minutes. (ayk)

hahaha makes sense man, when I was in high school, in the end of the year there was always a kind of poll and surveys to 'grade' how the teacher had done.

Yup, indeed. Grading teachers doesn't mean you give them number, right? When I was in school, I sometimes shared what I felt to the teacher (who was quite close to me). And you're right, it could create 'a bridge' between my teacher and me. I've been a teacher for around 8 years; if my students grade and share what they feel about my teaching or their impression in my class, I feel that they give me more attention; I take it as suggestion.
