actuallyfixedThe Echo is a Kuna High School news publication, focused on getting current news that happens in and around Kuna High School. We will be publishing most of our content online, but if you would rather read a newspaper we print our best work around once a semester. We are very excited to be reporting the news this year and we thank you for checking out our newspaper! 

Should Students Be Able To Grade Their Teachers?

Every day we turn in worksheets and essays and tests for our teachers to grade us and then at the end of the quarter or semester we get a progress or grade report with our grades and Grade Point Average (GPA). These grades and classes give us credits for graduation, and a high GPA can give you a chance to get a scholarship for colleges. But teachers don’t get grades, so how would they know if their students think they are a good teacher? Should their students be able to grade them? Every student has a different opinion on each of their teachers, so if they could give feedback, it might help the teacher know how to teach certain students. The grades would be more  than students’ grades, but they took college classes and study to be teach that class, so it would be fair. They could be graded with letter grades, like student’s report cards, an “A” would mean the student understood the teacher completely and taught students very well. A “B” would mean that the teacher was only understood sometimes and taught the students well. “C”’s would mean the teacher was understood every once in awhile, but didn’t teach students that good. A “D” would mean the student never understood the teacher and they didn’t teach students well at all. Lastly, an “F” would meant that the teacher didn’t know anything about the subject and the students taught them more than they taught the students. However, students can be unreliable and pick favorites, so seeing as administration already grades teachers, they could make sure the grades from students are realistic, and if they aren’t they could ignore that grade and take an average of all the realistic grades for that teacher. It would not be a grade to evaluate the teacher, just something for the class to do as the semester or year ends, so the students wouldn’t need any training either, just told what each grade means.

Overcrowding at Kuna High School has been a problem for many years. The school has over 1,400 students, and it was only built for 1,200. With the immense student body consistently getting bigger each year, many problems have been arising, including limited parking. While for years, the parking lot has been a problem, this year, a solution was formed: parking passes.
