To those "above" me, I am inconsequential. To those "below" me, I am indispensable.
Only one of those groups actually matters. And it's not the group that thinks so very highly of themselves. Only one of those groups still has the potential to change our system, to improve education and our society by addressing real and complex issues in immeasurable ways. The other has already given up, and is looking only for numbers from a test or a survey that will help them justify their existence to their own bosses.
I'm uninterested in catering to the desires of those "above;" as uninterested in that as they are in creating real and effective change.
