--NOTE TO TEACHERS--
on this site "elite educators" and similar phrases
never mean teachers.
(The terms refer to the bosses at the top,
the professors who make policy, i.e., the Education Establishment.) 
This site, in fact, is a teacher's best friend.
See "This Site's Mission" or "31: Teacher Liberation Front."
