CONTINUATION OF LAST YEAR’S THEME
The Business of Paradigms
THIS IS (A YOUNGER) BUDDY
THE NEW NORMAL
Mission
Market
Margin
WHAT’S WRONG WITH
STUDENTS THESE DAYS?!
Students today can’t prepare bark to calculate their
own problems. They depend upon their slates,
which are more expensive. What will they do when
the slate is dropped and it breaks? They will be
unable to write.
Teacher’s Conference, 1703
WHAT’S WRONG WITH
STUDENTS THESE DAYS?!
Students depend upon paper too much. They don’t
know how to write on a slate without getting chalk
dust all over themselves. They can’t clean a slate
properly. What will they do when they run out of
paper?
Principal’s Association, 1815
WHAT’S WRONG WITH
STUDENTS THESE DAYS?!
Students today depend too much upon ink. They
don’t know how to use a penknife to sharpen a
pencil. Pen and ink will never replace the pencil!
National Association of Teachers, 1907
WHAT’S WRONG WITH
STUDENTS THESE DAYS?!
Students today depend upon store bought ink.
They don’t know how to make their own. When
they run out of ink they will be unable to write
words of ciphers until their next trip to the
settlement. This is a sad commentary on modern
education.
The Rural American Teacher, 1929
WHAT’S WRONG WITH
STUDENTS THESE DAYS?!
Students today depend upon these expensive
fountain pens. They can no longer write with a
straight pen and nib (not to mention sharpening
their own quills). We parents must not allow them
the luxury to the detriment of learning how to cope
in the real business world, which is not so
extravagant.
PTA Gazette, 1941
WHAT’S WRONG WITH
STUDENTS THESE DAYS?!
Ball-point pens will be the ruin of education in our
country. Students use these devices and then
throw them away! The American virtues of thrift
and frugality are being discarded. Businesses and
banks will never allow such expensive luxuries.
Federal Teachers, 1950
WHAT’S WRONG WITH
STUDENTS THESE DAYS?!
Today’s students depend too much on hand-held calculators.
They can’t do long hand division.
1980’s
Today’s students depend on Google, they don’t know how to
use the Dewey Decimal System!
2000’s
Today’s students want to use FaceBook, Twitter, InstaGram,
WhatsApp, WeChat, and Kakao Talk…
2014

YOU MISS
ALL THE
SHOTS YOU
DON’T TAKE
AFRICAN PROVERB
Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It
knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it
will be killed.
Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must
outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a Lion or a
Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be
running!
LET’S HAVE A GREAT YEAR
TAKE THOSE SHOTS,
AND RUN LIKE HECK!
