Does a student at a language centre have the right to choose who teaches them?
Yes they do. Private language schools are a business. The students keep the money rolling in. The last thing a school wants is a teacher who is so unpopular that no one wants to study with them. What are the students going to do? I’ll tell you. They vote with their feet and go elsewhere.
There’s no doubt about it. A popular teacher is always good for business!
I worked at several schools where the admin staff would sometimes hand out questionnaires to payiong students and have them score each teacher for personality, effectiveness, appearance, etc. Fortunately I used to score well in these surveys but I still enjoyed a moan about what I felt was the unfairness of the system. It’s only years later the reality has dawned on me - why shouldn’t schools survey students and find out which of the teachers are cutting the mustard. Which of their teachers are keeping those re-enrolments going? Which teachers are bringing in the cash? It’s all a business at the end of the day.
