At it?s core, teaching is about teaching things. That is pedagogy. In an ideal world, every student would be able to learn every thing the teacher teaches.
It is only (relatively) recently that teaching took on the role of learning, or better known as remediation, and quite frankly, not only does it suck at it, the more you make teaching about learning, the less you make it about teaching, until such point, it isn?t about teaching at all. Or learning.
There are fundamental truths, you mockingly call tautologies, that many reformists break every time they speak. And I am certain that this, along with other fallacies, keeps damning their theories.
We shouldn?t expect such a lack of precision, rigor and reason in the science of education.
