Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future
The day provides the occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and draw attention to the voices of teachers, who are at the heart of efforts to attain the global education target of leaving no one behind.
Lately, I’m finding myself using the metaphor of being careful to not to fall ‘Down the Rabbit Hole‘. And while I’m not a particular fan of Alice in Wonderland, I do appreciate the symbolism of the story.
For me, the Rabbit Hole represents a warning. A warning for myself (and others) to not be pulled into that space of distraction where others may want to take you.
What is a Rabbit Hole? Its reference goes back to Alice being attracted to the hole in the ground and then falling head over heals into a new world of amazement and distraction.
In the real world, Rabbit Holes are sometimes referenced when we see something that pulls us away from the task at hand. I reference the concept when I see things such as questions or statements that may even seem somewhat related to the topic, but in reality, they are meant to pull us away from the important conversation or task in front of us.
