Thanks so much BW. It's so funny...and some parts oh so true!
There are so many similarities between health and education. Think of the small impressionable minds... and that's before you get to the children.
Teaching children is one of those jobs I swore I would never do, the other was being a police officer. So much government interference, so many many many experts who don't do the job but inexplicably absolutely know best!
Even those of us not in education can appreciate the irony and sadness in the truth.
For too long the mantra of 'what gets measured gets done' has ruled. The problem of course is deciding what should be measured. This is usually what is easiest to measure, the superficial and irrelevant, rather than what should be measured.
