Plexus Associate Lewis Rhodes created Sabusense to help people trying to "connect the dots" within a different "big picture" in order to make sense of what they think they see happening in schools every day. (It works for other organizations, too.) It draws upon the logic of "Sabu," the Elephant Boy, who had no choice but to deal with "whole elephants," as he helped the "Blindered" (not Blind) Men around the Elephant take advantage of the connectedness of the "individual parts" for which they usually were held solely accountable. This way-of-thinking then provides the platform for learning from the 12-year journey of a major (140,000 student) US school district that has been transforming how people think about, and judge, the work of teaching and learning we call schooling.
