I have been hearing this a lot lately: “People don’t like change.”
I get it but here is my question. If we know that there is a better way of doing something, and we have to change our past practice to make it better, is it that people do not like change or the work that change encompasses?
Change for change sake is not good enough. Change to make something better is the goal. If what we are doing now is the best way of doing things, then there is no reason to change. But, if we know something is better and serving our students in a way that is needed, is change the true barrier?
Is it that people really don’t like change or is it truly that people do not like the process that change incurs?
What are your thoughts? I hope this can spark some discussion and I can learn from others.
