Spanish-teacher-blackboard (1)SPAIN is one of the only a few advanced countries that doesn’t regularly assess its teachers, a new study shows.

The OECD report on 37 economies lists Spain, Ireland, Italy and Israel as the only four that don’t require regular assessment of their teachers.

“In Spain, the only consequence of underperformance noted in an appraisal is the failure to progress to registered or certified teacher status,” the report says.
