It's not just an escalator

I've been watching the discussion on Twitter and several education blogs about the idea of teachers (and others in education) being stuck. Many of us don't seem to be willing or able to think outside the box to make the necessary changes in education. Someone posted a link on Twitter to this video yesterday (unfortunately, I don't remember who it was) saying that it reminded him of the conversation. I have to agree. I've watched the video several times and I keep thinking that here we have solutions right in front of us, but so many of us aren't doing what it takes to make it happen. When will we get off the escalator?
