|Thank your for such an enjoyable education etymology article.|
I'm thinking of how compound words evolve in another area of education.
First there was "home schooling" Which became the hyphenated "home-schooling."
Finally, it was accorded its own compound word status: "homeschooling". (Although not in the AP's own compound word" "stylebook".)
It takes a long while for a concept to go from two words, to a hyphenated phrase, to a compound word.
No idea if we'll ever get to "teacherleader", but say it aloud. It has a nice ring.
Thanks again for a wonderful article with a new twist for us PD folk.
