The naming of things

Over at TTMF, Jim Putnam has followed on from my "Old aphorisms..." post of the day before yesterday (and his own "Serendipity"). I, in my turn, hogged his comment box with a wholly excessive quantity of response.

One of the things I mentioned in that response was the (in my opinion crucial) difference between "teaching" and "education". Those who have had the misfortune to sit though any of my teacher development (I don't like "teacher training") courses will be wearily aware of this bee in my bonnet ... for anybody else who is unwise enough to ask, I refer you to my "Words, words, words" post, a couple of years ago.
