Acronyms may make communication speedier for insiders but they confuse, irritate and deter the uninitiated. Sometimes they are an obvious abbreviation (helpful) but often they are vain and pompous “e-CAF – Electronic Common Assessment Framework” or downright ludicrous “CTPS – Classroom Teachers Pay Spine”
Here is the best list that we could find. Hopefully, it will make the dense forest of educational verbiage a little less impenetrable. Unfortunately, the powers that be are tirelessly working to increase their number or, to keep us on our toes, subtly altering ones that we thought we had mastered.
If you find any more, not on this list, that are shockers or simply incomprehensible please let us know.
