The insurance industry is trying to stop schools from using the word “abuse” in their curricula.
The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) is trying an alternative, which it calls “empathy training.”
Insurers and education companies have fought the push to use the word for decades.
In a statement to CNNMoney, the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) said the association has never supported the use of the term “abuse.”
The Association’s statement continued: “The term is a controversial and inaccurate label used to describe many forms of abuse, and we oppose its use.
The term is intended to be a neutral term and to reflect the range of ways we see abuse, not to be the only descriptor for those who are victims.
In the current climate, we believe that schools should be able to discuss the complexities of trauma and abuse with their students and teachers.”
The AASA added that the term is not intended to describe all forms of violence, including rape.
According to the NASBE, the association’s parent organization, The Association for Education Professionals (AAEP), is the leading national organization representing the insurance and education industry.
The AAPE released a statement in 2015, in which it called on the AASE to remove the word from its curriculum.
In 2016, the AAEP wrote a letter to the American Education Association (AAA) asking that it withdraw its recommendation to allow use of “abuse,” which was written after the APA issued its own guidance.
The letter read: In our letter to AAAS we express our disappointment in its recent decision to use ‘abuse’ in its curriculum for the 2018-2019 academic year.
This decision was not based on sound policy or research, but rather on personal feelings that we do not share.
We are concerned about the use and abuse of the word ‘abuse.’
The word has come to mean any behavior, including verbal abuse, which is not only destructive, but also stigmatizing, degrading, and harmful to our students, teachers, and parents.
The AAAPE also noted that using the term in its syllabi and classroom discussions can cause teachers to “understand and understand” the students and their feelings, which can be damaging to students who may have internalized the abuse.
“Our students are often taught to believe that all abuse is ‘natural’ and ‘just,’ and that this is the only way to learn.
This leads to a distorted perception of the truth about abuse that can make it hard for victims to speak up, or to leave abusive relationships,” the AAAPEs letter read.
Earlier this year, the AAs Association released a report on the “misuse of the abuse label.”
It found that the use by schools of the terms has increased, but it has also increased significantly over the past five years.
A new report, called “How to teach children about abuse,” from the Association for Educational Research and Development (AERD) found that use of abuse is on the rise in schools nationwide, but only in some states.
According to the report, in North Carolina and Georgia, the use rate is about half what it was in 2015.
The report also found that in Texas, use of misuse of abuse has tripled since 2015.
An AERD spokesperson told CNNMoney that there is no reason to believe schools should use the term abuse anymore, but the agency believes that schools need to understand the nuances of how the term has become a part of our educational vocabulary.
However, the study did not examine how widespread the use is or how widespread it is in schools in other states.
AAERD’s report does suggest that the usage of abuse as a term for sexual abuse has decreased in schools, but its report also said that it is not clear how schools should take a different approach to teaching about abuse.
“The use of abusive language is a significant factor in this increase in use, and this use has not been limited to schools,” the report reads.

In general, students and staff who experience sexual abuse are more likely to report the crimes to authorities, the report said.
