Let’s build a wall in education.
No-one can be admitted unless they meet our carefully crafted requirements.
The ones who don’t get through we will make pay for it.
That way we can only admit the people who are like us so that we can make more and more of us and trample out the masses.
…or let’s not.
Instead, we will build bridges for the brilliant and beautiful public.
We will work toward setting them up for success so that they can learn from us and we from them.
Sure, it will be messy work and hard work, but it is our job as a public university. It is what we are payed to do by the public we serve. We will likely even have to actually pay for the bridge construction.
But which kind of learning organizations do you think will make a better world?
Ones with walls? Or ones with bridges?
These are the questions we face in our organizations.
Truly and astonishingly, these are the questions we face in our world, today.
(I probably goes without saying, but anything I post on my blog having anything to do with politics or opinions in general are not and should not be considered a representation of any organization I work for, but are my own alone).
