The Triple-Threat Model under Pressure
Martin, Greg
Independent School, v76 n1 Fall 2016
Boarding schools have always been unique environments. In addition to time in class, students and faculty share meals, athletic and artistic interests, and the tacit understanding that meaningful connections with adults carry a great deal of weight in formative years. Yet in an age of increasing specialization and parental expectation, the once- sacrosanct "triple threat" model--in which adults play the three central roles of teacher, coach, and dorm parent--is under pressure to change. In this article, the author explores the staying power of the triple-threat model at boarding schools where adults multitask as teacher, coach, and dorm parent.
