Teachers vs. Educators - Labels Used in the News

I get google news updates for various keywords. I used to teach high school physics and math, so I like seeing what articles Google is finding. I search for "educator" and "teacher" and get separate emails for each. What I notice is that, usually, "teacher" is associated with a lot more negative news than is "educator."

  • teacher arrested
  • teacher charged (or accused)
  • teacher sentenced
  • educator awarded
  • educator remembered
  • educator honored

Yes, there's some positive and negative used with both terms, but the headline news Google finds tends to be as I describe above. It's odd. I don't like it.


This is very interesting, and not at all surprising. It falls right in line with what I expected upon reading your headline.Thanks for the nugget. I don't like it either.
