OMG it’s TDC

Love them or loathe them three letter abbreviations (TLA) are endemic within education. When I first started in education I was instantly reminded of the scene in the film ‘Good Morning Vietnam’ in which Robins Williams was ridiculing the instructions given to before the  visit of Richard Nixon, the US Vice President ( VP).

…No, sir. The former vice president is a delight, sir. Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the VP is such a VIP…shouldn’t we keep the PC on the QT, ’cause if it leaks to the VC…he could end up an MIA, and then we’d all be put on KP.

With this in mind and with Christmas coming here is a bit of cheer and a quiz to help you through the TLA jungle.
