    Changes in staff Leading to teacher Incompetency

    So heres the context:
    We have two teachers for ancient history, and have all year. This term however, one of those teachers had to leave, and was replaced by an incompetent teacher. So we are left with one adequate teacher for our lessons on Monday and Tuesday, however, on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, we have a teacher incapable of teaching the subject. This teacher has taught us nothing in an entire term, so 3/5ths of our classes this term have been wasted. Including me, there are currently 10 students in the class, all of which have expressed amongst ourselves and other peers the inaptitude of our new teacher.

    Below is an email i sent to the other members of my class, in a bid to have us come together and make a change for the better of our class.


    "Can we all get together and see [head of senior school] and ask if we can have a change of teacher. The incompetency of our teacher should not be what prompts people to drop the subject, especially those who wanted to continue the subject through the HSC and possibly into later education and for their career. Prior to the introduction of [current 3 day teacher], only 3 or so students wanted to drop ancient, following his introduction, only 3 students wish to remain. If we had a teacher (ie. [Modern History/backup Ancient History Teacher]) who would actually teach us both the syllabus and the techniques behind writing historical essays, then we would actually have a chance at even PASSING the HSC course. In our current situation, we only have a competent teacher for two days of the week, even though that only makes up roughly half of our allocated sessions. If we hope to be successful in this course, we need to share our opinion regarding the inadequacy of our teacher, and his incapability to effectively teach our class."

    It's difficult to get the school to change their minds, TBH, unless you've got a really good reason. The most you can do is seek extra help from your competent teacher outside of class hours, if they're willing to help you.
