According to the Jewish and therefore Christian tradition, God created the heavens and the earth by speaking it into being. When He did so, He made something other than Himself. 

This is one of the most important things the Bible teaches, along with the Trinity, the Incarnation, and the death and resurrection of Christ.

As I have worked with and observed schools over the past twenty years, I have become ever more concerned about the degree to which the infinite and immortal souls of the children who attend them are treated as tertiary matters (maybe, at a good school, secondary) by the school leadership. What keeps leaders up at night seems to be whether enough parents will enroll their students to pay for the building program or whether the bills will be paid.

Over at Linked-In I came across a discussion about giving bonuses to Headmasters. A board member had mentioned the perfectly sensible idea of tying bonuses to standardized test performance. What follows is my reply. I am experimenting with the new blog, so please forgive me if it doesn't look good. I'll try to fix it as I am able.
