It's a typo that is known about but requires the Duo admin to fix. Branden mentioned that in an update once the course first hit beta.

By the way, would "the head teacher teaches English" be acceptable? (I know this only implies that he is a teacher of English and not that he is teaching English sasa hivi as strongly, but it still seems fine to me, any thoughts?)

Why is "The teacher of head is teaching English" wrong


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Catriona28475

Because there is no such thing as a "teacher of head". The person who runs the school and is responsible for all the other teachers is called the "head teacher" (previously known as "headmaster" or "headmistress", but that is very old-fashioned).
