Here is asking DHS chief Kevin McAleenan about secret Facebook group for Border Patrol agents that was rife with offensive posts. She tries to get him to answer about whether any agents in that group remain on duty at the border.

They might want to pour a cup of something stronger than coffee.

I hear that. For me, I am just happy to cede that word on the big movement levels to others and find that words that resonate more deeply with me.

For politicians who need a primer on how to condemn 45’s racism—take a lesson from Ch Merkel when a reporter asked if she stands with the US congresswomen of color who were verbally attacked by 45? Clear. Simple. Powerful.

That's cool... we might just disagree, but I look at Horn and Christiansen's work around "Disrupting Class," and I get really worried about what I see people doing in the name of disruption.

I'm a post-modernist and I taught kids English. Words matter. Words have power. And words enable actions. I want to use the right words to push us to our best actions.

It's the "break it fast" model that worries me. There are winners and losers in all the examples people cite. (Uber, etc...) and we must be way more intentional about that in education spaces. I don't want SLA to disrupt. I want SLA to help others innovate and evolve practices.

Most definitely... it's why I think a better *overall* lens is evolutionary, not disruptive. Change and evolution is disruptive, but we shouldn't seek disruption without considering the impact that it will have on the folks (kids and adults) in the system currently.

I also think that we can do better than "disruption." I prefer evolution. We can be thoughtful about what has come before us as we seek to make schools better. In my experience, too many of the folks pushing disruption lack humility.

I am incredibly wary of folks who push “disruption” as a model in education... Disruption in education disrupts kids, and that can get very dangerous. We have a moral obligation to be WAY more critical about change and innovation than start-ups in business do.
