Great post, Kevin! I've sent the link to members of our board to consider before we begin our next planning cycle. Thanks.

Carla Silver just sent me this link. Your post is right on!!!! A major problem with the template approach as practiced is that schools don't synthesize. They don't think deeply about mission and philosophy and identity, nor do they try to connect the dots between each of these categories. It's like the silly interdisciplinary courses in which integration is left to chance. So at the end of the day, shallow thinking rules and assumptions are never challenged. Great insight!
