I have found that discussing some topics usually ruffle feathers of those who fear free speech, openness and transparency. It’s as if by silencing others, they will eliminate the threat represented. Yet, if sharing ideas and information is the threat, then human beings will never be safe.
What if what we need in education are more bloggers, unafraid to ask the hard questions and ruffle the feathers of those who, like career politicians, appear smooth as an oil slick in the Gulf?
Happy reading! (oh, and Miguel’s the one on the left)
