We Can't Be Shackled by Memories

By Mrsebiology @mrsebiology
I'm revisiting Curriculum 21, edited by Heidi Hayes Jacobs.  In one of the chapters written by her ("A New Essential Curriculum"), she discusses myths that shape our schools.  The first myth she mentions is that "The good old days are good enough," the idea being that the adults in charge that grew up in that community try and keep the schools in "time-check" out of comfort or nostalgia.  Below is a quote from that chapter regarding that myth that really hits home with me, especially after experiencing many years in education at 5 different school districts.  I think it serves as a warning that without change, there can be no growth or innovation...and we will be forever stagnating, shackled by our own memories.
