Zig gives us a new twist on Emerson's mousetrap analogy as it applies to education
I’ve made several references to building a better mousetrap. The original saying came from the famous American essayist, Ralph Waldo Emerson. He wrote, “Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.” If Emerson’s quote addressed the actual strategies of U.S. education, it would go something like this: “Build a better mousetrap and the educational community will lie about either your mousetrap, where your door is, or what constitutes beating a path to a door.” (p. 54)
This last chapter provides much information on the DI implementations since 2000. The Baltimore project is particularly interesting. I'll devote a post to it later.
If a mind is a terrible thing to waste, the educational establishment is guilty of incomprehensible waste.
