The seemingly unending batch of material prompted this sequel—High School Edubabble, to the earlier (2018) Edubabble: A Glossary of Teacher Talk.

Relentless jargon, a distinctive workplace, and teen foibles make for a goldmine of satire in over 350 entries. The unending tsunami of education sloganeering highlights this humor-filled, quick-read glossary. Why would edubabblers favor listless descriptors when silver-tongued gibberish and fluffy acronyms can add mystique to any everyday term? There is no career like education and no workplace like a high school. The antics of zany teens, quirky teachers, preening principals, and hovering parents provide buckets of satirical fodder. Entries such as Crisis Junkies, Grad Hug, Principal’s Message, and Teacher Behavior at Meetings are but a few of the dozens of entries emphasizing high school as a unique workplace. Unlike previous generations, today’s educators face tech-addled youth who are drowning in a churning sea of information, much of it of dubious quality. A range of tech-oriented subjects is lampooned, including, Drones, Monks of the Digital Age, and Screen Addicts. High schools do not operate in a vacuum. It is difficult for teachers to set standards of truth-telling and respectful discourse in their students when such behavior appears to be absent from many of today’s leaders. This challenge is noted in such entries, among others, as, Anti-Educators, Journalism, and Weapons of Mass Distortion.
