Progress per traditionem.

Different Class by Joanne Harris

Much to the chagrin and worry of the aging Latin Master, Mr. Straightly, John Harrington is back at St. Oswald's, but this time he's not a student; he's the new Head. Harrington has some ideas of how he wants to bring St. Oswald's into the 21st century, but modernizing this old institution isn't going to be easy. Computers, renovations, marketing, re-branding and even uniting St. Oswald's sister school to finally introduce mixed classes are great ideas, but even they can't lay the past to rest. 
In Harris' latest novel we find out how sinister forces from the past could jeopardize this old school's future.
