thinking about all of us.. who have/are perpetuating Ed system.. no?..pretty much all of us..[ie: if it hasn’t changed the world yet.. since now it/we can… perhaps it’s because we’re not letting go.. ness.. so all of us.. ness]

w popular work… voices heard most ..yet still perpetuating school: sir ken, Seth, chris and zac, Paul, will, malala, me…

so too.. all teachers..admin…parents… politicians.. stu voicers….that perpetuate rather than go deep enough…
can’t say… not equal.. [ie:These edureformers were not credible, are not credible. I refuse to engage them as equals, and will not rec their work]…can’t point finger.. we spend so much energy pointing fingers…. rather: find some good in them.. or not.. and spend energy working toward alt..not..?
earlier tweet talked of alt…
that’s what we need.. perpetually.. a nother way
