school people are better than everyone else

If you've never checked out Dan Meyer's blog, well, I'll simply say:
Check it out.
Granted, his most recent post is based on someone else's post, but when you get right down to it, not much by way of information transfer has changed since Ferris Bueller's absence in the seminal film about his day off.

Mr. Meyer posts a snippet from Jeff Wasserman. Jeff says:
I find myself entirely uninterested in matters ed-tech, ed-policy, or ed-anything related, aside from what’s going on in my own classrooms...
But Scott McLeod wants to know if:
anyone else [can] think of an employment sector other than K-12 and postsecondary education where employees have the right to refuse to use technology?
And Scott asks two questions at the end of his post that makes the corned beef extra-lean:
Why aren't our school organizations expecting more of their employees? Are we that desperate for workers?
