When it comes to education, there is no lack of public opinion. Since virtually everyone has had some significant experience in the classroom, we have also formed our own opinions on education. These opinions are built from our own unique vantage point and often vary widely.
However, agreement can be found on one front: There is no lack of jargon in education. Chances are, unless you are a teacher, support staff or administrator, you find the jargon unnecessary and confusing.
