Term Definition
students

a term deemed to be less problematic than pupils in that it is less heavily influenced by power relations. It is commonly used now for learners at secondary school as opposed to being only used for those at the tertiary level. It is less obviously relevant to primary-aged children for whom the word 'pupils' tends to remain. 'Student' is related to the verb 'to study' which may make its appropriateness questionable in some cases.
