What are the advantages and disadvantages for boarding schools for changing school climate?

Advantages-
-Adults in boarding school communities have the opportunity to witness exactly what is going on with students. They can accurately address the disconnect that sometimes occurs when students tell their parents what is going on at school.


Disadvantages-
- Not all faculty will "buy in" to changes proposed and adopted, so how effective can any attempt be?
- Consistency (i.e. timing) in application of any changes. If you make changes mid-stream, even for the best reasons, it can lead to confusion and inconsistency.
