Re: [school-discuss] What's in a name?

"advocate" and "guardian" sound too much like legal terms. "Agent"
sounds like you're advocating cloak-and-dagger techniques.
aide" sounds more like a teacher's helper. "Patron" and "sponsor"
sound like somebody who is giving them money.

What's left? Helper, pathfinder. Of these two, I think "helper" is
too broad. Hmmm... "pathfinder". I probably wouldn't have thought of

it, but it does have kind of a nice sound to it.  I guess my vote
goes there.
