Look Elsewhere


So many of us who run a specific program or system marry ourselves to it. Blinding ourselves from seeing that there are other ways.

If you run SOLEs, and believe in them, great. Look elsewhere to help children.

A single idea is not going to revolutionize education or transform schools (what the hell does “revolutionize education” mean anyway? Have we conceded, teachers, that what we do is industry, while still ever complaining about a factory model of education?)

Like Santa advises Macy’s customers in Miracle on 34th Street, the help someone needs may lie elsewhere. If you are not helping people look elsewhere and everywhere for what they need, no matter how “innovative” you think your idea is, then you are ultimately working for your own profit and gain.
