The Roar and the Splash

Reflections by the sea:

The sound of the ocean is twofold, the splash of waves on the shore, with a powerful, constant background roar.

Is there a parallel in education? Does reform more closely resemble the steady energy of the roar, or the flow and ebb of the splashing tide? Is the normal wearing action of the waves enough or is a tsunami necessary, to sweep away old systems so that we can begin again?

I gather shells and contemplate the future.
