Re: Uneducational or non educational

My spelling checker is telling me there is no such word as

uneducational, which I thought there was.

I mean it just uneducated isn't it.

It says non educational, which ok means the same but .. no I want one word, the opposite of educational.

uneducational Surely.
If an exercise was Educational, it would mean that something would improve your education - make it better and create new brain pathways.

If uneducational were to exist, an exercise that was uneducational would make it worse - physically removing pathways from your brain and making you less clever.

Non-educational simply means there is no educational value in an exercise so there is no benefit, but equally no loss in that exercise - watching paint dry perhaps or reading English forum's Donald Trump thread.
