"She is inarguably unqualified as a teacher ________ that she is unable to control the class"

something along the lines of "considering that", " based on the fact that" etc.

Are any of the two above acceptable/recommended?

I would appreciate it if you could come up with a single word conveying that meaning.

Thanks in advance.

    Well, "considering" is a single word. As are "given", "seeing", and other synonyms you can look up in a thesaurus of your choice. – RegDwigнt May 30 '17 at 14:18

  • I'd be tempted to use a semi-colon and remove 'that': She is inarguably unqualified as a teacher; she is unable to control the class. – Steve Lovell Jun 11 '17 at 18:45

I would argue "considering" cannot be a correct answer because that is a dangling modifier. How about now? "She is inarguably unqualified as a teacher now that she is unable to control the class."

  • I agree, it fits; but it adds an additional idea to the basic meaning. – aparente001 Jun 4 '17 at 3:03
