Basic Education Minister, Angie Motshekga, says the current system for the evaluation of teachers in South Africa’s schools has failed and a new model, possibly including the idea, despised by trade unions, of returning to an inspectorate, has to be developed.
Motshekga says the existing integrated quality management system and its associated development appraisal system will be retained for now because they are the only tools available to assess teachers.
She says the tools are not very useful, and it had been agreed they will be revised. She further states that assessment of teachers is a weak area and it is difficult to get accurate information on teachers.
