Code challenge - task 4 Teacher Stats

I've tried a few approaches to resolving this but not having success.

My thinking was:

  • unpack the dictionary to single key dictionaries
  • compare value lengths
  • return dict with greatest value length

This seems cumbersome. Could this be a valid approach?

If I recall correctly, the task 4 instructions ask for a list of lists instead of a dictionary. Also, I remember it wanting a count for every teacher, so you won't need to do any comparisons to determine a greatest length.
