Fault Lines

I was reminded of a very important principle of life today.  "People are more important than programs". We have a lot of new initiatives being implemented this year at Landmark HS.  New isn't always easy.  Sometimes it is quite difficult and almost always it is stressful.  We have been working so hard to implement new programs that we have been inadvertently allowing struggling students to slip through the cracks.  Perhaps Geology can explain it.  When there is a great amount of stress on the Earth's crust, sometimes fault lines--huge cracks in the Earth's surface--form.  It might be easy to fall into these cracks or faults.  One might say, "But, it's not my fault. This is your fault."  Does it matter?  Take a number and get in the fault line!
