Independent schools are semi-sacred spaces of intrigue, action, and innovation. Yet they can be loci of drudgery, strongholds of status quo, and crucibles of hostility toward change. Culturally interesting, they command our attention and pique our curiosity. They are dramatic and complex. They are also home to generations of school folks who have labored to instill respect and admiration for a vie formative that is family-oriented, highly personal, and advocates the Renaissance ideal of the honnte homme as an educational model. This volume introduces readers to thoughts, insights, and critiques of independent schools as they adapt to the twenty-first century.
