Pet peeve #906: "average"

Tony Blair had his big monthly press conference this week. It was mostly about education education education, which is fair enough. But what annoyed me was this bit:

It is to make sure ... that average schools become good schools and that good schools are able to expand and develop in the way that they want.

So basically, either the average school is failing after 9 years of Labour, or the good schools are determined to fail so that the average schools can become above-average. Neither of which are what I think he meant...
