Community and education. It's a foreign concept in today's education system. Community, or any sense of it has all but evaporated. Students are forced to compete against one another and the teachers and administrators, because of far off bureaucratic control, are almost powerless to change anything.
The education industry is famous for it's lack of innovation. But the tide is slowly beginning to shift and it's the educators, not the administrators, who are leading the charge for education innovation.
