We’re not brave enough

A quote from Will Richardson’s recent blog post:

The workplace is transforming, and I don’t use that word lightly. But in education, we’re still happy to just adopt and trumpet “innovations” that at the end of the day change little because we haven’t been brave enough to do what we all know is best for powerful and deep learning (not schooling) to take place in classrooms, and because we’re loathe to keep up with and embrace the difficult new contexts of life and work that our kids are facing.

Lone educational nuts of the world unite…and be brave.  Effect meaningful innovation and change that really matters for kids, no matter how many crazy eyes you get from people.
