* Averted in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' - the teachers aren't major characters in either case (though one's a Social Link in the former), but there's a different teacher for every class.

Even with a large student body, especially one [[ImprobablyFemaleCast with cute schoolgirls]], the faculty needed to maintain a large campus may rarely appear. Actual teachers may be limited to the homeroom, English, [[SchoolNurse nurse]] and gym teacher, sometimes [[EconomyCast both at once]].

The rest of the time, education will occur with no visible staff -- even when the action takes place in and during a class, a teacher is almost never shown. Like ParentalAbandonment, this prevents adults who would otherwise have an interest in (or at least an influence on) the main characters from interfering with the plot. It's also a way to [[EconomyCast avoid creating extraneous characters]] the show isn't going to focus on anyway.

This may be [[HandWave handwaved]] by the presence of an AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil running things, or the pragmatic view that even when screentime is spent on characters actually being in class, it's not the ''lessons'' that are important to the plot. It's also a way to avoid the expense of creating and animating an entire classroom filled with people.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' only had Mr. Brown, Ms. Simian, Rocky, and Mr. Small as the entire visible school staff. Lampshaded in one episode where all of them went missing or were injured in some way, and it was pointed out that there are no teachers left in the entire Jr. High. Season three added a coach who goes by Coach, but that's it so far.

* Despite all of the action in ''IkkiTousen'' taking place in or around several high schools, there are absolutely ''no'' teachers or staff members visible ever. Perhaps they all got tired of being under attack by supernatural fighters all the time--or maybe they just have been killed already. Of course, one wonders why the police never shows up either despite the regular highly visible outbursts of violence, but maybe [[WeirdnessCensor they just don't care]].

* Averted in ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', where there was at least one teacher of every major subject- although the original principal's "retirement" turned pretty quickly into switching places with the English teacher.
** Though that switch is a bit more complicated; the former principal becomes the new Social Studies teacher, (replacing [[HeavySleeper an old lady with a pillow at her desk]]) the English teacher becomes the principal, and [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection iTeacher]] becomes the new English teacher.
