New school

The double entendre is very much intended, because the New School's new president is anything but old school.

The New York Times article announcing the appointment of Northwestern Law School dean David Van Zandt as president of the New School offers this delicious observation from soon-to-be President Van Zandt:
People want to know what the facts are, and through a lot of discussion, people can understand why change may be good. . . . [A]cademics tend to be the most liberal politically and the most conservative when it comes to changing their own organization.David Van Zandt
Congratulations, and good luck.
