I propose making a synonym of , because they are fairly closely related and questions on education should go to Mathematics Educators anyway.

  • $\begingroup$ Since this has positive support in like 3 different places, I just tried to propose teaching as a synonym of education. But I got a weird error: "Failed to propose synonym: Reverse synonym teaching already proposed on the tag pedagogy". Anyone know what this means? $\endgroup$ Aug 6, 2015 at 7:12

    $\begingroup$ @6005 If A is a synonym of B, then B can't be a synonym of anything. The only relation supported is having one master tag and a bunch of its synonyms. So, since pedagogy is a synonym of teaching, one can't make teaching a synonym of any other tag. Without mods getting involved, that is. $\endgroup$
