Pet Peeve

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.

  1. 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.

  2. To whom are they selling “disruptive educational strategies” as a positive?
