A great quote in the centre of a lengthy post from Christian Long at think:lab that felt like my conscience speaking:

But remember, it's easy to criticize. And frankly, the 'experiment' of public education continues to still amaze after more than 200 years...even if we have a long, long way still to go.

He was responding to "Rotten Apples awards 2005" found on the "Teach and Learn" blog but it was a timely reminder for me that my posts recently have been a bit negative/overcritical and that it would do me good to reflect positively or criticise constructively in future and try not to be a typical Aussie indulging in a bit of "tall poppy" lopping.
