Students Grading Teachers?

From next year, public high school students in Tokyo will be able to grade their teachers. Teaching ability, presentation and course development will be among the skills evaluated, though schools will be allowed to choose their own evaluation system. The plan is to be implemented at 100 schools -- out of 174 that volunteered -- on a trial run basis. The move is part of the metropolitan government's reforms of its high school system as public schools struggle to compete with private institutions for a dwindling school-age population. The school district system, which assigned schools depending on the student's place of residence, was abolished this year.
