Seth Godin commented about change  in one of his recent blog posts. 

We're tackling this at the moment, in our Elementary school, working on creating a calmer, more respectful atmosphere in which to learn.

The interesting thing to me is that Godin's point--that some people resist change loudly, and some wait quietly to see what will happen--applies equally well to both adults and children.

No question about it, we all know: change is hard.

Refusing to change-- when conditions cry out for such action--seems to me to lead to situations that are even harder.
