Foundations of Education: No change necessary
 

Our society's move away from teaching as a profession hasn't been good for anyone: kids, teachers, or society. If teachers are entrusted to educate our children (and I hope they are!), we should ensure that they have the background, knowledge, and context about education to do this well. Though a name change might seem like a minor thing, the message it sends--and the additional changes it might cause--are at best unnecessary and at worst damaging.
