An excellent example of the concept that the overall quality of the product often can exceed the sum of its individual parts. The Nettle Creek School Corp. is a small town school system that has consistently maintained a fine quality, well-rounded education to its students, despite all the economic and social changes in education over the last half century. In 40 years of world travel since my graduation, I am amazed with how no matter where I found myself, or in whatever situation, my education there provided me with a basic understanding of my surroundings. If a public educations bottom-line goal is to prepare students for the world that awaits them in their future, the NCSC is like an old world craftsman among a world of production-line factories. This is the place where you want your children to grow up in.
