How can we bring about such a change which inculcates creativity and innovation when we are tasked with changing mindsets of Millions?
Well, perhaps we must first escape the rat race ourselves and invite others to join us. Maybe we can influence one here and two there...a teacher, a friend, our child's Teachers and Principal, our own children, etc. There is great hope in starting a "movement" or "revolution" one person at a time...and then keep going Ironically, this forum provides us with that opportunity. I once moderated the Governor's Task Force for Educational Excellence in our State...Education is NOT a priority here for many reasons. After 7 months of talking the team of 30+ were in a stalemate. We had all the data we needed, knew we were in deep trouble, had money, the vision, State support, all the right people in the room and yet nothing substantive was happening...so I concluded the problem must be with the "educators" in the room. They simply would not risk changing a thing. Leaders were pushed aside by the majority of "let's keep talking about it" folks. But individuals within the group were touched and began to make grassroots changes...and so on and so on. We've got a long way to go with our schools but we're not alone in getting behind what Ken is saying. Keep talking. Dr. Savage
