If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.
There are very few dichotomies in life. Even something as seemingly clear cut as gender is influenced by one’s biochemistry, belief system, environment, bank account, etc.

But the problem-solution divide in education is more black and white. Even the huge range of grey suits in the middle or those who seem to be sitting on the fence are part of the problem.
Why? If you are not doing something about the problem, you are part of the problem. If you are merely complaining or explaining or talking instead of taking action to actually rectify the problem, you are part of a problem.
If you are an armchair critic and not a soldier in the battlefield of change, you are part of the problem.
