Disgruntlement

            I had to stop myself from going too far with the last post. I very nearly veered into a related subject in gruesome detail, but it would have been a rant and not very productive. I’ve read enough rants online to know that they aren’t very interesting, nor do they solve very much.
            Instead, I will present this as a warning. Within education (primary, secondary, and post-secondary) there is a miasma. By this I mean there is a fundamental wrongness that is sweeping through the system. It is subtle and pervasive. It is growing.
            The education system is nearing a critical mass and none of the proposed solutions will actually change anything.
            I’ve had opportunity to speak to teachers in various parts of the country, at various levels and various disciplines. I haven’t spoken to one that has believed that the situation is improving. I haven’t talked to one that has ideas on how to correct things.

            Soon it will be an epidemic.
