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.
