Saying It Like It Is - I Don't Think So!



Some other common euphemisms:

* Tenure reform - tenure elimination
* Pension reform - reneging on promises given to retirees (for over fifty years) by the State and raising pension and medical insurance costs to current employees
* Education reform - the State dictating what is taught, when it is taught and how it is taught
* Accountability - evaluating teachers based on student test results and observations many of which are made by people with no knowledge of the subject matter
* Core Curriculum Standards - a plan which allows government to tell schools what to teach, how to teach and when to teach it
* Charter School - a private school funded by the State many of which are run by politically connected cronies with large salaries and benefits
* Education experts - those who claim to know everything about public education even though they have had little or no first hand experience but are highly experienced in BS!

I am sure you have many more! Send them in!
