Independence and Survival.
James, H. Thomas
Independent schools that are of viable size, well managed, and strategically located to meet competition will survive and prosper past the current financial crisis. We live in a complex technological society with insatiable demands for knowledgeable people to keep it running. The future will be marked by the orderly selection of qualified people, whatever their background, who will make the adaptations, invent the new technologies, and find the energy sources we need. The independent schools that face this fact and adjust their search and admissions policies accordingly are more likely to find the future less shocking than those that do not; they will also be more justified in their claims to training the leaders of the future. The price of survival for independent schools will probably be less independence because the judicial system is now hammering out procedures and due process for making decisions relating to the rights of teachers and to the rights of children.
