Topic Wording for Education

Recommended Posts

It seems to me that the modifier on education is super weird. The resolution specifies "elementary" and "secondary" education, which from what I can tell means K-5 or 6 and 9-12. It doesn't make any sense to me that this arbitrary exclusion of the 7-8 cohort would be present in the resolution. Seriously though, am I just misinterpreting this, or is this just bad wording,

Practically speaking, "elementary education," refers to K-8 and, "secondary education," refers to 9-12 - this is likely what the framers were attempting to convey. However, for teaching degrees and certifications, "elementary education," only includes K-6. So, basically, it's:


just bad wording
