One of my personal bugbears is the triumph of ideology over evidence or data – not least because I myself can fall prey to it. MythBusters is usually silly and about “blowing things up real good” but sometimes what the TV program blows up is preconceived notions. I’ll never use the expression “like a bull in china shop” again either.
So we have a ton of evidence to tell us how to transform education, yet still we resist change, hem and haw and hesitate.
Time for a leap of faith – with the ton of evidence! Look at these bulls: who knew they were really ballerinas?
