How to bypass bad teachers
Re: “CEGEP teaching skills lacking” (Letters, May 17)
Donna Wilkinson tells of her two children’s unfortunate CEGEP experience, and of her being “appalled by the poor quality of teaching.” To me, this seems a rather unfair and sweeping generalization.
As in any profession, CEGEP teachers come with a wide range of skills, from the excellent to the poor, but students can bypass weak teachers and head straight for the good ones.
They could capitalize on their fellow students’ very efficient grapevine, or better still, they could consult various websites assessing teachers’ capabilities. If nothing else, either may save one from stumbling into a poor instructor’s class.
