COVERING UP THE FAILURES IN EDUCATIONby Lyn Olsen on Dec. 10, 2012, under Education
When unqualified and/or incompetent people are hired/promoted in education (or really anywhere for that matter), there are several things they do to cover up their inability to do the job right:
Because they don’t know what they are doing, they compensate by building more buildings or creating more paperwork or changing anything, so that it looks like they are doing something….usually changing from what does work to what doesn’t…
But they can’t fix the problems they created because they never ask the people who do know what they are doing, because they think they know better than anyone else
This is exacerbated because they don’t listen, so they don’t hear….
Because they don’t hear, they don’t understand….
They don’t need to because they know better than anyone else….
And even when they ask others what they think, they don’t want to hear and they are intolerant of those who disagree with them, even after they asked for others opinions, because they think they know better than anyone else….
And in knowing better than anyone else, they never take responsibility nor make decisions….but instead blame someone else when they fail…..
Instead they resent those who are competent because their incompetencies are then evident for everyone to see….so it is a necessity for them to do everything they can to keep competent people out…..
An, while they accuse others of wanting more money, they keep asking for money to fix the problems they created as well as money to create thousands and thousands of more programs to do what they failed at…because even while failing they still believe they knew better than anyone else….
But as it is with any fool, while they think they know better than anyone else, they are only fooling themselves, because others do know.. including students …if only the educators would listen to someone besides themselves…..but, after all, they do know better.
