Update on Smart

The wind howls, but the mountain remains still.

Japanese proverb

I probably shouldn’t be surprised that the SMART board project here has got off to an inauspicious start yet I can’t help but feel disappointed. It seems that the money has dried up for the project so the schools involved are yet to receive any of the materials necessary to start implementing the new curriculum. What really riles me is that the chaos of the project is not treated with the obloquy it deserves and the people involved in the project (including myself) seem to merely shrug their shoulders at the latest setback as though it was an inevitability. This insouciance means there is not even a specter of accountability for any mistakes made. The mountain remains, the problem is the wind is but a whisper.

For children are innocent and love justice, while most of us are wicked and naturally prefer mercy.

G.K Chesterton
