I guess it takes a high level of sophistication indeed (and no naiveté at all) to deal in slogans like the following:

- -- "PUT THE EDUCATION MAFIA IN JAIL!" (Haim, who is alas no longer with us);

- -- "BLOW UP THE SCHOOLS OF EDUCATION!" (Wayne Bishop, inspired by Reid Lyon [Reading Research Expert]);

- -- "Children must be PUSHED or GOADED to learn math!" [and presumably everything else] (Robert Hansen [RH], PERT expert).

(Conundrum posed entirely in a spirit of genuine inquiry, not with a view to "poke with a stick" or anything naughty of that sort).

("Still Shoveling! Not PUSHING!! Not GOADING!!!")
