Bill, I have been a principal in both types of schools that you mentioned. One challenge I set out for my teachers is to look for the forgotten 10% in our high achieving school and think about how we can make a difference for those students. There are challenges wherever you look!
I get frustrated at blogs that make demands - "Why do schools still do this?" "Most principals never?" "Nobody is listening to the students" But I think the root of this frustration lies in the fact that these blogs challenge me to look at my own school. That being said, I do love to hear of "real" schools that are making a "real" difference. Most of us agree with the progressive ideas we hear at conferences and in blogs...we just need to be able to put these ideas into practice.
