The terminology associated with 'alternative education' is very confusing and problematic.

Confusions in communication and terminology are perhaps the most difficult hurdles 
for discussing educational alternatives. All too frequently, we use the same words 
to describe different things, or different words to describe the same thing.
                                                                     Martin (2000)
