Quantity discounts for the paperback edition only: Law, medicine, science, business, economics, psychology, sociology—each of these fields has evolved a specialized vocabulary that its members use to communicate with one another.
Perhaps this language is necessary to discuss sophisticated ideas that are beyond the understanding of the average citizen; perhaps not.
The result, if not the intent, is to mystify the public. Education is no exception. Like those of other professions, the language of education is often incomprehensible to those outside the field.
But more than other professions, education should strive to be intelligible to nonprofessionals. Educators must be able to speak clearly and intelligibly to all those who care about what happens in classrooms. It matters not only for the wellbeing of students but also for the well-being of public education.

I first encountered the strange tongue of education many years ago, when I started my graduate studies at Teachers College, Columbia University.

In the s, pedagogues created a new vocabulary to describe child-centered learning, individualized instruction, and romantic views of the child; many of these terms have survived to this day, still sounding newly minted after almost a century of usage. In fact, media reports abound about new schools that embody policies—such as no tests, no textbooks, or no predetermined curriculum—that were hailed as Preface 3 innovative more than years ago!
Still more terminology was added by psychologists of education, who thought that their tests would make schooling a rational enterprise, and by sociologists of education, who saw the schools as a means to shape children to assume their foreordained roles in society.
