Most students are still in need of learning proper objective response and critique when Seniors. The responses on Rate MyTeacher are reactive and emotional. Sadly, the remarks are not always written by students, but parents and even other teachers. Good, bad, or indifferent, the possibility for this means the site is nothing more than a place of ranting, inauthentic information, and the bullying of teachers.
There is no reason that RateMyTeachers.com should be abolished. While there may be a fair amount of spam from angry kids who are failing their classes, RateMyTeachers.com should not be abolished for it. It can be a very valuable tool for the school districts to see how their teachers are performing.
