Key phrase, 'Crash-only means there is no such thing as gracefully starting and stopping non-trivial parts of your life or business. You have to crash what you’re doing and recover in a more promising direction. The fact that it is a crash means that, unlike normal decisions, there is a sharply increased probability of not coming out the other end.
Crashes are traumatic, high-entropy, messy ways to achieve transitions, which is why transitions in life and business are so hard. We want clean, smooth turns that smoothly and isentropically shed momentum in one direction and accumulate it in another direction.....It doesn't happen.'
Is that what's happening here in education, at our institutions, in the state-supported systems?
