Independent Schools - Winter 2010

Charles Sosnik | 11/19/2010

The theme of our winter issue is Independent Schools. I asked Jim McDaniel, Headmaster of the Linden Hill School in Northfield, MA to write a lead article that would make the case for Independent Schools . As Jim laid out his argument, I began to realize that there is much to be learned by public schools from the independent school model. The simple fact is, unless we quickly build about 100,000 new independent schools (give or take), independent schools will not be an option for all our kids. What is an option, however, is to take the tenets of the independent school experience and apply it to our own public schools. For families that... Read More...

HELPING STUDENTS GRADUATE THE POWER OF SCHOOL Community collaboration in Dropout Prevention

Franklin Schargel | 11/19/2010

The job of running schools is too complex for schools to do it alone. For any school program to assure the high academic achievement of all children, there must be an active partnership between the school and community to address the social and personal, as well as the academic needs of children. But a disconnect exists between educators and community people. Educators tend to see educational reform as focused on promoting the academic achievement of young people. While community builders (and some educators) focus on academic achievement in a broader context that includes social and personal development. Read More...

CYBER SMARTS FOR THE FACEBOOK GENERATION Strategies to stop cyberbullying and online self-harm

Ruth Herman Wells, M.S. | 11/19/2010

For the Facebook generation, their worlds revolve around all things electronic. As a result, the venue for student problems is shifting from the real world to the virtual one. Unfortunately, virtual world problems can often become real world problems too. At our professional development workshops all over the U.S., we’re getting a lot more requests for help with students who are facing or engaging in cyberbullying. We have also been getting a lot of questions about what to do about students who are literally trashing their own reputations and credibility by posting damaging pictures and comments about partying, substance abuse, their interper...

EXCELLENCE For All Stakeholders

Larry Biddle | 11/19/2010

Several years ago while preparing for a meeting of the Board of Directors at Burroughs & Chapin Company — one of the founding development companies started over 100 years ago in Horry County, South Carolina — I was reading a golf course appraisal and evaluation report on our Arcadian Shores golf course, which at that time was leased to the oceanfront Myrtle Beach Hilton hotel. As I studied the comprehensive document, a four-tiered assessment about the quest for excellence caught my attention: golf courses and schools are very much alike. There are lots of traps! Too many students fall into traps every day! This report featured four distinct c... Read More...

Why independent schools?

JAMES McDANIEL | 11/19/2010

In the interest of full disclosure, as author, my perspective has been shaped by 35 consecutive years working with independent school educators or for independent schools. Raised as the son of two NYS public school educators, I took a summer job just south of Binghamton, NY that was run by independent school teachers from Episcopal Academy, Groton School, Princeton University, Penn Charter School and Kent School, among others. It was by the representatives’ of these institutions that my career was guided as I was coaching and dorm parenting from the age of 17 without the knowledge I was interviewing for my first job — in Independent Schools.

Public-private collaboration: Improving education for all

PATRICK F. BASSETT and MYRA McGOVERN | 11/19/2010

In addition to providing their own students a college-prep education, most independent private schools aspire to make a positive imprint on their communities. They cite the “public purpose of private education,” and seek to model the behavior that they hope to see in students: engagement in community life during school, in college and thereafter. The ways each school achieves this outcome varies, but in many cases it involves collaboration with local public schools. Read More...

Affording an independent school education

JOANNA EVANS | 11/19/2010

When our twin sons were born, my husband and I lived in a dormitory at Northfield Mount Hermon School. We loved living among the 82 teenage boys in our dorm and thrived on the community aspect of boarding school life. When our sons were a year old, however, we moved to a large university so that my husband could pursue a doctorate and become a professor. Years later, as our sons approached high school, we wanted them to have the benefits of a boarding school education. We also thought that as educators we could not afford boarding school tuitions, and we assumed that as a dual career household we earned too much to qualify for financial aid. Read More...
