Whitewater, Changes and Education

Last week at an administrative retreat, I had the opportunity to listen to Dr. Neal Schnoor, Dean of Education at Wayne State College.  One thing he had mentioned during his talk was that of change.  How education is filled with change, not slow change, but a "whitewater of change" to which I had a visual.  Yesterday I went to Yankton, South Dakota, Gavin's Point Dam, to look at the massive amounts of water that are being let through and flooding many areas below.  I couldn't help but think of his speech and the changes that we (educators) face.
