    You can't spell right either! Idiotes? Since when has that EVER been
    correct. So don't insult people if you can't even follow your own
    expectations of people. Besides, I think this is a good idea. Kids may
    want to know what teachers think of them, and, as in Hammurabi's code,
    an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. It's only fair that both ends
    get to see what the other is thinking.
