Good, fast, or cheap… and how could this relate to education?!

This sign was hanging in the local bagel shop:

Which one of these lines appeals most depends on the desired outcome and the variables surrounding your expectations. If the desired outcome is a bagel sandwich on the way to work, then slow speed is not an option- the choice is really between cheap or good. When writing lesson plans or building curriculum, quality is top of the list, so the choice is between speed (how fast you put them together) and cheap (how many resources that you have at your disposal that you can include/devote to that outcome). The choice is yours.

I’ve got another ten pages or so about this sign and the workplace, but I’ll spare you from that… for now!
