That post about superintendent transparency, I mean. I’m not gonna delete it. But to be honest, it felt forced. And the thinking felt thin.
I shouldn’t have put it up.
And then I saw Stephen’s pointer to this. Deadly transparency? Not good.
At some points, this all gets too complex for my feeble brain. What exactly are we to make of all of this? I know how powerful it’s been for me, in my own life. But at every turn, what I hear are mountains of reasons why it’s not gonna work. Why we can’t. Why we shouldn’t.
Ultimately, this isn’t about blogging and Web 2.0 as much as it is about a culture, an anger, a fear that these tools make writ large. That’s the thing. It should be about learning. Instead it’s about the disruption.
What do we do with that?
