Irony

I find it so refreshing to hear about educators embracing a new approach to teaching and learning like this (see article link below)  but a shame that it’s not happening here and I get what this article says about the buy in and take up and standards blah blah blah and I know that a blank canvas is an easier place to start but what an irony that we’re sending teams over to help educators in India implement systems we don’t have the courage to implement ourselves?

I know that’s a very simplistic view but I’m sure that helps to make my point all the more clear. We are going to find ourselves left behind as this approach is adopted in more and more developing nations, which is good for them but not so good for us be that student, teacher or nation.
