As if political correctness hasn't done enough already. This is overkill:

The word "fail" should be banned from use in British classrooms and replaced with "deferred success" to avoid demoralizing pupils, says a group of teachers.

Members of the Professional Association of Teachers (PAT) argue that telling pupils they have failed can put them off learning for life.

A spokesman for the group said it wanted to avoid labeling children.
"We recognize that children do not necessarily achieve success first time," he said.

"But I recognize that we can't just strike a word from the dictionary," he said.

The PAT said it would debate the proposal at a conference next week.
