A Parent’s Guide to Educationese

Education is jargon-larded and parents need to know a fair amount of it. In my PsychologyToday.com article today, I offer definitions of 35 common pieces of educationese.

To mitigate some of the boredom of learning jargon, I embed critiques of today's education enterprise. Those critiques are more justified than ever in light of the just-released PISA results. They are U.S. education’s latest embarrassment in its unbroken string of poor performance compared with other countries even though the U.S. spends #1 per capita in the world on education.

A panoply of laws, policies, and targets are aimed at making us gender-fair. But government’s long arm can extend only so far. How gender-fair are we when there’s no law to strike fear into our hearts?

"Alone Malone:" Story of a reclusive person

On PsychologyToday.com, I've written a number of pieces on reclusivity as a lifestyle choice, not a pathology, For example, there's The Recluse Option. Today, I offer an interview with Douglas Malone. 

A Voice of Moderation in the Time of Trump

We live in polarized times. Perhaps more than ever, we could benefit--psychologically as well as practically--from the perspective of an eminent moderate.

So my PsychologyToday.com The Eminents interview today is with a self-described “messy moderate." Robert Samuelson has won numerous national awards including, four times, The National Headliner Award “for consistently outstanding columns.” For 27 years, he was Contributing Editor at Newsweek and now writes a weekly, nationally syndicated column in the Washington Post. He is the author of The Good Life and Its Discontents and The Great Inflation and Its Aftermath: The Past and Future of American Affluence.
