INCIDENTS OF BAD VOCABULARY

?
 

The plural of incident is incidents...not incidences. Incidence and incident are two different words. I hear this misuse almost daily on news radio, both NPR and BBC. Are they teaching proper English in journalism schools? Or this another example of insane child-rearing, in which every child is told he/she is a genius, no matter how dense or actively resistant to learning.
