Outrageous!!!  Raciest and fundamentalists are everywhere. It's more dangerous when they are veiled as professors and are entitled to manipulate so-called national curriculum!

Academically? That was an interesting point. But the big question is: what is academical achievement? The sort of stuff measured by NAPLAN-like tests?
Missing just one day of school has negative consequences for a student’s academic achievement, the first major study linking poor attendance to lower NAPLAN results has found.

It's really dangerous if our children don't even know how to trip over. 
A preoccupation with safety has stripped childhood of independence, risk taking, and discovery—without making it safer. A new kind of playground points to a better solution.

一国两制,引火烧屋。祸源大统,罪起龙图。骑虎难下,弃守皆输。为今之计,弃卒保车。舍近图远,台港咸独。不愠不火,惟时以予。

What Anne says is nothing new--language changes every second and everyone contributes to the kind of changes. But it is the way that language has been de/regulated is really fascinating, as Anne has pointed out. Who are the people behind the scene? What kind of linguistic, political, institutional resources and instruments are employed? Who makes decisions and how are the kind of decisions made?  
One could argue that slang words like ‘hangry,’ ‘defriend’ and ‘adorkable’ fill crucial meaning gaps in the English language, even if they don't appear in the dictionary. After all, who actually decides which words make it into those vaulted pages? Language historian Anne Curzan gives a charming look at the humans behind dictionaries, and the choices they make on a constant basis.
