I’m beginning to see more and more that one of the biggest enemies we face in this work are the very schools in which we do the work. The CI birds wings are just too massive for too many of the admins working in our buildings these days.
These admins are ignorant of the research and that inflicts a heavy price tag on on real change in f.l. education in our country, seriously blocking it. These ignorant (this word is not being used here pejoratively but only in the sense of the French verb “ignorer”, to not know) people think that they are qualified to observe us and comment on our work but they aren’t really.
