However....they can be steps toward transformation, though not transformative in themselves.
 
I like the fact that you provide the alternatives that might work. 
 
I think it is really important to not just complain but to actually come up with solutions.  Lots of smart people out there that are doing different things that we should really be looking at to help move our school culture along.
 
I agree with that concept, though I don't see that being necessary on every blog post or every tweet. In other words, if someone wants to post about why merit pay doesn't work, I think that's okay if they've also written a complimentary post on viable alternatives. And I also see value in not only sharing what's working, but in being vulnerable about where we are struggling. That's part of the need for community as well.
