Inspired by Kyle Pace’s list, I want to offer my own. Write a response and share your ideas.
In education, we need to stop pretending that:
  1. Students cannot be trusted to contribute their own voice and choice to their education and schooling.
  2. Education technology, without an emphasis on pedagogy, is a panacea for all that ails education.
  3. Competition is good for learners. 
  4. Structural issues like oppression and poverty do not affect school systems. 
  5. Education fits nice and tidy into traditional subjects.
