There is an interesting article in today's
New York Times about a young principal at an affluent school in the Boston suburbs. His contention is that students are facing extraordinary degrees of stress as they vie for entrance to the best universities, and he has plans to reduce that stress. What gives his position a measure of credibility for me is the fact that he has been decried by Rush Limbaugh. He must be doing something right if the extreme right takes issue. Check out the article if you get the chance.
