The Blind Men and the Elephant

Current Application in My Mind

Do you ever feel like when you say the word “school” or “education” that you enter into the Blind Men and the Elephant? That the “group of six” has six very different interpretations and ideas about what school and education mean? Such a dynamic can create some very interesting confusion, misalignment, trajectory malfunction, etc.

How might we better appreciate the individual explorations and insights while connecting them all to a whole…to an entire system?

Clearly I don’t have all of this worked out, but I am thinking the metaphor and story have great relevance to my research on pedagogical master planning.
