1000 seeds, 1000 flowers

I visited the National College for School Leadership's Networked Learning Communities centre.

In meeting with David Jackson he passed the following comment in response to the often expressed concern about teacher innovation being 1000 seeds planted and 1000 flowers blooming.

The problem isn't the teachers; it's failure on behalf of the system to harvest the 1000 flowers.

This resonated with me.
