有保留地同意 (agree with reservations)。学生在评判教师时，
如果采取了这样的方式，就会出现老师迎合(cater to/ pander to/ play up to students' taste)学生而不是引导
Teachers have a very difficult job in society. They not only have to learn how to teach material effectively, but
also must learn how to deal with a wide variety of personalities. While teaching is a difficult job, I think it is
important for schools to ask students to evaluate their teachers. I think this is the right thing to do because it
encourages teachers to try their best, it gives students the opportunity to choose effective teachers, and it allows the
schools to have the best teachers possible teaching.
If a teacher knows that at the end of the term, the students will be evaluating his/her work, then the teacher will
be driven to do a very good job. If there is no pressure from evaluation, a teacher might be prone to doing a less
than perfect job. I believe that everyone needs an occasional evaluation to ensure they are doing their job correctly.
In the case of a teacher, the students will give the most important evaluations.
If there was a public summary of which teacher scored the highest on his/her evaluations, then students would
be able to take courses based on which teacher was the best at the job. This would allow students to excel in their
studies, and achieve better grades.
Finally, if schools ask students to evaluate their teachers, the schools themselves would be able to have the
best teachers working on campus. If a teacher scored too low on an evaluation, a replacement could be found.
This is a much better method than waiting for students to complain about a teacher.
Teachers do have a difficult job, but regardless of this, they must excel at it. If a person is a particularly poor
teacher, the students will not learn the required material, and suffer for it.
