Random Thoughts

So all in all the education system is not perfect to say the least. Changes need to be made and teachers need to be one of the ones to start these changes. Yet change takes time and sometimes a lot of effort. A lot of the problems we have in the system are things we have been doing for a long time and to try and change these things and introduce a new way of doing things is scary. People do not like change and regardless of if it is for the better they will fight you on it.
So I definitely agree that some things just are not working anymore and need to be changed but I guess the question is how? Should we totally boycott the old way and full force the new or slowly incorporate new ways into the old? But the major question is how far should one go for change? If it costs me my job is that really worth it? Yes I would be making a point but without my job I cannot help anyone regardless. What buttons are okay to push and which not so much?
I think a lot depends on the individual but still something to think about.
