Better Than Best

"How do you think the school has improved?" the imposing accreditation board asked us. The accrediting body, EASEA (E.A Sutherland Education Association), is interested in schools like ours, whose primary goal is finishing the work of Jesus, the Lord of the harvest. Several of us students sat apprehensively in a classroom facing the people who would decide if our school was worthy of accreditation. One could cut the silence with a knife. I sat in my squeaky desk thinking, "What could be changed?" I thought of our out-of-date buildings, small dorm rooms, squeaky desks, and terrible internet connection. Those things could be changed.
