Um, wow. Here is Will Richardson: "After 21 years in public education... today I notified my superintendent that as of May 15 I would be leaving the district for parts somewhat unknown. To put it simply, I quit." Yesterday I tried to put the case forward to OECD representatives about the barriers and hurdles placed in front of individuals in our field. Today we see Will Richardson leaving behind the institution that (apparently) has become more of a hinderance than a help to his work. "We need to get everyone, and I mean everyone access to the knowledge and people and ideas that now make up the Web. Educators need to be a part of this evolution, and maybe the revolution, too." Here's to you, Will! Good luck and godspeed. I am with you now, more than ever.
