Students as evaluators

I found an interesting article from the New York Times, “What Works in the Classroom? Ask the Students” 12/10/10 http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/11/education/11education.html?_r=2&adxnnl=1&ref=education&adxnnlx=1292086864-QhySyGTSuqx2YHm1Wo/zHA .  The early results seem to show that students are pretty go judges of their teacher’s ability to help them learn the most during the school year.  However, whether or not to include student input in the overall evaluation of teachers is a matter of debate.  I had not consider student input before reading this article, but I find it an interesting idea.  In other professions the 360 degree performance review is common practice. 

What do you think?  Take our poll and let us know.
