  54. 54. • "The pendulum is a perfect, oft used educational analogue. Once started, the pendulum swings freely from its pivotal point, increasing speed, building momentum, swiftly moving along its predetermined path, gradually slowing and coming to a complete stop at the height of its swing. Momentarily frozen, the pendulum now begins moving slowly back toward whence it came, gaining speed, moving ever faster, becoming unstoppable slashing through its apex, swinging upward, decreasing velocity, once again coming to a stop. Here it pauses reversing directions. then begins sweeping back along an arc with powerful impetus, retracing its course once again and then again and again. Educational movements are like pendulum swings, traveling with an irresistible thrust; then, unheralded, a new campaign drives yet another educational cause back the other direction, gaining momentum. Each new crusade, at first invincible, soon succumbs and is superseded by an opposing force just as powerful and relentless as its predecessors, until it too is supplanted with a new fervid impulsion ." – Bill Page—Teacher 54 – http://teachers.net/gazette/MAR02/page.html
