Would you ban people from using Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram outside of school? Why or why not?
Would you do the same in school? Again, why or why not?
If you answered no to both initial questions, you do not have a closed mindset. Continue to do good work or do not block others from doing so.
If you answered yes to both questions, there is no helping you. No amount of conversation, debate, professional development, or even an order from above will change that stance. You need to leave the system because you are doing more harm than good. You will find people who agree with you and they need to leave too.
If you answered no to the first and yes to the second initial question, ask yourself critically and reflectively why you have different answers. Why encase the school in an artificial bubble instead of connecting it to the wider world? What greater harm are you doing by attempting to protect?
