I had a discussion with someone the other day on young vs older teachers.
Are older teachers better than younger teachers or vica versa?
We talked about the pros of having a younger teacher
The pros of having an older teacher, or a teacher that has not become a teacher directly after leaving school
We came to the conclusion that due to the differing roles at primary and secondary school, younger teachers had the advantage at secondary school and older teachers had the advantage at primary school. Although clearly a mix has the most advantage, which is generally what we have.
What do you think?
