Seth Godin reminded me of this video in his recent post. It always makes me feel slightly uncomfortable, for a wide-range of reasons. You?

Here’s another post about teaching, education, learning and passion worth reflecting on by Seth Godin.



  1. I think it is meant to make us feel slightly uncomfortable – but proud as well. I have not seen that before and at times I was unsure where the point was going… But I agree with the conclusion.

    Thanks for sharing Darcy.

    Joe, your post covers much of what made me feel uncomfortable.

    Yep, first time I saw this a few years ago that warm and fuzzy feeling came through me, to have an advocate like that everytime someone mentions pay or low quality teachers…But…A little bit like seeing large private schools providing scholarships to Indigenous students and having the media praise them – we do this everyday and generally, no one notices…

  3. I really like this Slidecast made from the audio of Mali’s poem.
