Class visits an opportunity for development, not just to point out shortcomings
The MUT has to, once again, note that formalised class visits being conducted by SMTs are at times geared towards and focused exclusively on finding shortcomings and other negative aspects rather than serving as a way to support educators. The Union confirms that it has never agreed about structured reporting in writing during such visits and will not tolerate over scrutiny and added bureaucracy which benefits no one. Instead, class visits should be an opportunity to assist and aid in the development of the teacher.
