My new pet peeve is the use of the word “disruptive” in a positive way. The idea of “looking for disruptive educational strategies” sounds dumb.
This bastardized business jargon is beyond annoying.
I think it’s a symptom of our time that the ideology of “disruption” has replaced the older notion of “progress”.
Progress at least promised that things would improve, even if there was a disorienting period of change to be got through first. “Disruption” doesn’t promise anything except instability.

Good point. It’s instability as an end in itself.
“It’s instability as an end in itself.”
AKA…. the pursuitof fluidity by idiots who don’t understand what it really means.
To whom are they selling “disruptive educational strategies” as a positive?

Why is business jargon or specifically marketing jargon so…inane?
ME. I’m the addressee of this madness. Freaks.
Thanks for making me laugh, though.
