This paper looks at the mounting financial strains facing today's independent/private schools, boards, trustees, headmasters and similar school leaders and how they should be able to execute the necessary administrative and structural changes to negotiate today's financial obstacle courses. The writer argues that they will fall by the wayside, as is the recent trend for most independent schools if they refuse to adapt.

From the Paper:

"Present day and emerging challenges to the financial viability of independent schools will likely require changes to the structure and arrangements of independent school cultures. In preparing for the challenges of change, independent school boards and headmasters and the relationship between them. In particular, boards of trustees will have to express stronger, more directive and explicit objectives so that heads will have clearer mandates to change entrenched arrangements. By doing so, a board will confirm its direct responsibility for the school's well-being, and it will become more realistic to hold the head accountable for leading the school along the trajectory which the board desires."
