"Children are not widgets, inputs do not equal outputs and the production line is at least 14 years long. Schools are unique among human institutions in that all the constituent pieces — children, teachers, parents, administrators — are often together for years, from pre-kindergarten to grade 12 in some schools. And during those years all the constituents grow older, learn more and, hopefully, grow wiser. The core of good schooling is continuity and stability — or it should be." (03/31/11)
