I find this kind of work to be both funny and sad. I hate that we have to be snarky about our educational work in order to get across the point of how unproductive some of our word choices are. However, I do find that sometimes it is valuable to satirize and skewer those choices and make it visible to those outside of the education world.
So, I am sharing this in order to see whether or not other folks feel like this list is valuable. Is it?
