LETTER: Teachers know best what’s needed in class

Do not be so critical until you really know what you are talking about.

I wonder how many people believe they know more about how to improve their job than someone in management or in the accounts department?

Listening to the people who are actually doing the work is an essential component of any strategy to increase the effectiveness of an organization.

The people educating your children are telling you that class composition is an important component of an effective education system. Listen to them!

Too many unsupported special needs students in a class means that all students in that class are being cheated of the best education possible.

It’s time for parents and business people to tell the government to abandon its blatant union busting strategy and provide the funds that will enable students to be the best they can be.

To those of you who think that teachers are being unreasonable try living a day in their shoes; do not be so critical until you really know what you are talking about.

Peter Denby, Victoria
