A warning to “education” vendors
Posted September 24, 2015on:
You think you know better, but you do not. You are not an educator, a researcher, or even a keen observer. Being a concerned citizen or a parent entitles you to get into the arena as much as knowing first aid gets you into an operating theatre.
You think you can offer schools or education outfits a better process or product, but you cannot. You do not speak the language or understand the culture, and you have not earned the trust of school leaders and educators.
You make claims, but you do not deliver on them. You make promises, but you break them. You say that the well-being of kids is your concern, but I see you working on your own self-interest.
You spout platitudes and claim expertise, but you do not have the reputation, the background, or even the character to pull this off. You claim to want to shape the future, but you are firmly anchored to the past.
You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. I am on to you. I am letting the others know.
