> You claim to be "sharing ideas". Except that simply "sharing ideas" in conventional prose as you claim to be doing is quite evidently not sufficient (or even adequate) to enable development of an Action Plan to resolve the problems, accomplish the aims that you claim to desire. "Sharing ideas" is not something so utterly superficial as you seem to think it is.

We aren?t just sharing ideas, we are putting them into play. Sharing ideas here (and on other forums) has not only been quite effective, there isn?t even a second most effective method. There are no classes or books available that capture the insight into pedagogy that has been shared here and on other forums. I don?t know why that is. It isn?t overly complicated. I don?t know why, in 6 years I have answered 90% of my questions about pedagogy when I should have been able to get those answers directly from the schools that teach teachers. Well I do know why, now. The schools that teach teachers are not teaching pedagogy they are teaching political policy.

We did a lot of things, documented right here, and it has been quite the journey and effort doing so many things, for all of us. If you want to claim that you have a way to distill all of our insight into a more accessible *plan* using a more accessible medium that you can then give others so that they may share our success, then by all means do so. I think that would be great.

In the beginning of our journeys, each of us do come here thinking that we can change the system. Even Haim started with that notion way back, before my son was even born. But after a few years of discussion and study, we all come to the realization that the system isn?t pedagogical, it is political, and you can?t fix the pedagogy in a system that isn?t even pedagogical. Some of us take longer than others to come to this realization, but if pedagogy is why your are here then it is inevitable that you come to that realization. But our motivation remains. Our motivation was our children?s education and so we go on and apply what we have learned and shared to them, with or without the help of the system.
