The Carnival of Education is up at Sharp Brains and boy, it's fantastic. Heck, one of the categories is Education as a System. You just know that posts in the category are going to be thought-provoking. The same goes for the posts in Learning and Teaching Philosophy.
Spend a bit of time with this week's carnival and I think you'll realize just how close many people inside the system and those of us outside it are on so many issues.
