Actually what I don't care about is myth, spin, and maintaining old patterns.

Tradition is IMO the antithesis to progress & innovation, it is built on myth, faith, marketing, and nostalgia. Tradition is social and political, it is all about staying inside the lines, about maintaining the way things are.

History, not tradition, is important in education and it is a subject near and dear to my heart.
