Teachers are bound to have different ideas in the areas of classroom management, teaching styles, motivation, etc. I think my stance in this matter echoes Quine’s reaction to Carnap’s idea of philosophy as second-order discourse – which is that second-order discourse is every bit as ubiquitous as first-order discourse, the former doing nothing more than switching from the material to the formal mode (see the concluding pages of Word and Object).
