  1. Nice metaphor. It is aspirational. Can it aspire fully and well within status quo higher ed institutions? Or is it still focused on “permitting” students to lead? Probably has to be this way if we are to live within this system. I always thought that you could and should lay down parallel tracks inside that system. The idea was to render unto Rome what was Rome’s and unto the learner what was the learner’s. I still do this, but I am much less sanguine about whether Rome doesn’t corrupt that parallel track. Is there such a thing as being a learner as defined by the school and one as defined by the self? Seems we get what Du Bois called the “double consciousness” or worse what Bateson called the “double bind.”
