Teachers too busy to learn?

Found this interesting quote on a blog I subscribe to. How much truth is in this comment?

“Anyone who has worked very much with teachers realizes that once they’re out teaching, most of them actively avoid learning anything new. After all – they already know it all! Teachers make the worst students, just like doctors make the worst patients.”

Are we that busy that we have taken our eyes off the prize? How can we encourage teachers to continually learn and develop their teaching ability when they feel stretched to the limit already?
