Evolution: The gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
Revolution: A single complete 360 degree turn; a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system.
Revolution has evolved into something much more complex than turning around in circles yet it remains true to its original definition.
Revolution has done nothing to create and sustain drastic social change in any country in which revolution has taken place.
Revolution, scientific or social continues to be a 360 degree turn, taking us right back to where we have always been, at the mercy of the “hedgehog” elite.
The elite understand that revolution is a lesson in futility. They support the revolutionary’s attempt to rise up and change the direction of education by agreeing to meet their most important demands; less testing, disconnecting teacher evaluation from testing, less data collection. However, the deepest, darkest problems in education remain unchallenged and unchanged.
Revolution seems to work because everyone becomes satisfied with the turn of a few degrees around the circle, feeling good about having affected change, not noticing they have returned to the same place they were before but it is fifty years later.
We must begin to gradually develop a system of education that moves humanity into a more complex form of existence that concentrates on people not money.
When we provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, actively involved citizens, delivered by adults who recognize and respect their own gifts and talents and are therefore able to recognize and respect the gifts and talents of their students, there will be no need for revolution.
When we change the current system of education to focus on the child and not the money it takes to educate the child we will no longer have to forcibly take over our government, we will revel in the knowledge that we, the people of the United States, are the government.
