The Problem with Hire Education Today

Dear College, Dear Colleagues,

The significant problems we face cannot
be solved by the same level of thinking
that created them."

We can’t solve problems by using the same
kind of thinking we used when we created them.

Logic will get you from A to B.
Imagination will take you everywhere.

Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them.

"Learning is a cycle of confusion
always followed by clarity"
Professor Dean Kahl

In day’s of old when nights were cold,
JESTER was a court fixture, responsible
for making a monkey, so to speak, out
of every soul who showed up with a
proposal for the king:

crack on it
whip it good
cut & curdle
tweak & twiddle
bring down the house

and then, if the proposal survives all that
play, suffers the slings and arrows and
still had merit: it got royal consideration.

Earlier, in the Jewish Court of Law: a
similar function was filled by “the satan”
who, as adversary, accused unmercifully:
finding fault & flaw, mistake & error,
inconsistency, contradiction, misplaced
modification and dangling elements—
dia-bolically and appropriately throwing
the defendant “across” the coals, so to
speak, under the bus we might say:

in the interest of exposing truth &
consequences: getting to the heart
of the matter & out outing damned

And then, if the accused survived,
suffered the hooks & barbs, snares,
innuendos & insinuations, still
standing after all that efficient
attention: he got juridical

Dia-bolical (to “throw across”)
on the one hand so as to achieve the

Sym-bolical (to “throw together”)
on the other hand.

or as Professor Kahl would describe it, more
Chronicles Of Hire Education Worthy than me: :

"Learning is a cycle of confusion
always followed by clarity"

We celebrate clarity. We hate confusion—
which is why jester & satan don’t get
the curricular appreciation they deserve.

We prefer NBS (nothing but symbolical)

No Jester, no Satan, no dia-bolicalism
need apply: no illegal immigrants &
subversives,. no collateral damage,
no trial and erroring… no no no
say it ain’t so, Joe. .
