It is not difficult in today's political climate to understand that good campaigning is redefining the common language of the times for your own political benefits. There are common threads that weave through political arguments. These common threads are the terms and phrases that take on different meaning for each candidate. They entice the populace because the rhetoric is familiar. They also direct attention to the candidates and their platform. This process is working for politicians, and it can work for educators of the gifted, too. We can build our advocacy efforts on the common language used by policymakers in general education to the advantage of gifted education. There always has been discussion about the negatives and positives of educationalese, the language coined by educators to describe and promote intentions and directions in education. Advocates of gifted education need to use the current educational jargon to draft their advocacy efforts. Redefining the common language for the common good of gifted students is the challenge and demand of today's educational political climate.
