The Headteachers' Association of Scotland's cousins south of the border have become rather skittish of late - no doubt due to their new guise as the Association of School and College Leaders, formerly the Secondary Heads Association.
The latest issue of its magazine has a plain English guide to educational jargon. Entries include:
"Literacy across the curriculum: a system for blaming others for children's bad spelling."
"Performance management: appointing a head of the arts faculty to deal with those of artistic temperament."
"Virtual learning environment: a geography quiz showing the class have almost understood things."
"Ringtone: "what any sensible (Westminster) education minister does before choosing a policy."
