Fear of the unknown

Fear of the unknown (Via The Thinking Stick.) Jeff Scofer: “Education should be continually beta continually trying new things exploring possibilities and looking at the skills our students will need for the future.”

This is today’s “Hallelujah, Brother” referral.

Me, speaking of risk taking in our latest OCDE Podcast (to be released shortly):

There is gonna have to be some experimentation and it’s gonna have to be ok for school districts to try something that doesn’t work. But this is a touchy subject because we’re talking about people’s kids, and their future, and education. It’s no wonder we have conservative educational institutions.

I’m not sure how to resolve this, of course.
