Diane Ravitch's blog

1. Deceit, fraud

2. Anything calculated to deceive by false show; anything externally splendid but of little intrinsic value; worthless finery.

3. Things worn out and of no value; useless matter; trifles; rubbish; nonsense.

That’s the definition in the 1983 Webster’s Dictionary.
