I've seen that the Teacher badge (first answer) is the second recommended badge after Student (first question). It's encouraged by the "Go get it" button.
Why are we encouraging newbies to answer questions almost soon as they start using the site?
Isn't it a bit shooting the leg with wrong/misleading/VLQ answers which will be down voted/close/deleted ?
Can this approach be reconsidered?
Adding regarding @Glorfindel answer, I think how hard is to write a good answer is/can be primary opinion based,unless there's any statistics on this (anyone accept the challenge? ), But I'm almost sure that on meta sites it's harder to make a positive answer when starting using the site.
Therefore I suggest other badge should encourage after, as Enthusiast, which will make the newbies more aware/knowledgeable about specific site Q&A standards (even if they are experts)
