Psychometric tests just turn us psycho
About time! Now they just need to introduce it to Scotland. I have seen far too many teachers get in without the right personality, which can make a huge difference to the interaction between pupil and teacher, as well as the general atmosphere in the classroom.
Now all they need is a lie-detector test at interviews, to separate those who "actually do want to teach and have had a lifelong passion for it" from those "who do it for money, status, holidays as well as those who do it because they don't know what else to do with their lives".
