Sensible and knowlegeable person would do any sort of good things unbiased, and it seems the said principal, in good interest and intention has got this idea. But students on their part couldnot well be said of unbisedness based on dwindling nature of children. They may be influenced, good or bad, very easily.
Hence, whatever outcome, we maynot find it a role model to follow in other schools as well.

If the process of judging the teachers is purely on liking or disliking of students then it is not good. But if grading of teachers is done on some standardized frame work which include grading by the means of, teachers communication skills, ability to clear doubt, ability to judge the children's strength and weakness etc then its really very good practice.

this system exists in University of Pune but the students there are all Post Graduates. there is a difference between mature people and kids. that is why voting rights are given to people who are 18 and for the same reason official age for marriage is 18. we cannot give the right to judge to children who think very much emotionally.
