Israeli teachers can only be awarded a master’s degree if they pass a course on the teaching profession.
The grading system, which is based on their grade point average (GPA), is supposed to provide an objective measure of their skills and knowledge, not their performance on the job.
But for years, teachers have been subject to an unofficial system in which their grade is added to their performance ratings.
The system is designed to weed out the weak and incompetent, and has been used by Israel’s chief education officer, Yaakov Peri, for years.
Last year, the government banned the use of the system in the country’s public schools, and replaced it with a merit system.
The new system was set to take effect in 2018.
But now, two months after the system was introduced, there is a growing chorus of voices questioning its effectiveness.
“I’ve been asking my students to grade their teachers and I’m still not getting a satisfactory answer,” said Gershon Pazdersky, who teaches English in a settlement in the occupied West Bank.
“The grading system is an important tool, but it should be done by professionals.
Teachers need to be trusted to teach and they should not be treated as a commodity.”
In a blog post on the Education Ministry’s website, the education minister, Gideon Saar, said he had instructed his ministry to review the grading system.
“We need to look at the grading method,” he wrote.
“If we find that it is ineffective, then we will not be using the system.”
Pazdsky told Al Jazeera that he would be writing to the education ministry to express his concerns, adding that the ministry has not been forthcoming.
The minister has also suggested that teachers be given more power to grade students on a merit basis.
But teachers, who are also members of a profession with an independent legal status, are not allowed to vote on the system’s changes.
They cannot even be nominated to lead a student in a course.
“It’s the most absurd system that I have ever heard of,” said Pazrdersky.
In a previous article, Al Jazeera highlighted how the grading scheme was used by the head of a private school in the West Bank settlement of Beit Hanina.
In June, his students were given a test on how well they could handle the stress of teaching, while his teacher was given a rating based on how often she got called on to teach.
The students’ grades were then sent back to the teacher.
The teacher, who is not allowed on school grounds, received a score of 0, according to the Education Department.
This is in line with the Israeli government’s grading system: teachers are awarded a score based on the amount of stress they have to deal with on a daily basis, and the higher the score, the more stress they can handle.
According to the government’s website: A student with a 0.5 grade in a classroom can be considered incompetent, as the teacher was not properly trained, or because the teacher did not teach well.
In some cases, a teacher who was able to teach a child a lesson would be deemed competent because the child was able understand the lesson well.
However, students are not graded on the basis of the amount they are able to cope with stress, as they are also not graded for the amount their parents spend on them, or for their school attendance.
This means that teachers who have poor grades will be awarded less than those who do well.
According the Education Minister’s website (emphasis added): A teacher who is deemed competent is entitled to receive a 0 rating.
This score is based mainly on the level of his or her performance, but also on the number of students in his or the school, as well as the amount spent on them.
A teacher with a 1.5 rating can be deemed a proficient teacher, which means that he or she has mastered the material, and they are given a 2 rating.
A 0.2 rating means that the teacher is not able to adequately teach, and is therefore not allowed in the classroom.
A 1.0 rating means the teacher does not understand the material and does not teach.
A 2.0 grade means that there is little or no effort put into teaching.
The Education Ministry does not define what a grade means in this system.
In the case of Beidin, for example, the teacher received a grade of 0.9.
In an article in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, a parent of one of Beilin’s pupils, a 13-year-old girl named Nadia, said that she felt “disappointed” with the way the grading was applied.
“In my eyes, it is not fair to a teacher,” she said.
“He was not taught in Hebrew, but I don’t think he had enough English knowledge to teach the material.
I don`t understand why this is a problem for me.”
In the wake of the Beidins case, a new bill to reform the grading process was introduced
