    Just talking about that with a colleague today! I think we need to weigh much heavier in depth (since most of what I see in schools today is the breadth - 'cover the standards' mentality) - if nothing else, it would help teachers and students focus on the learning more so than the "school"! Do you utilize UBD? If done well, it forces the teacher to really think about and plan for the depth, while still allowing for an interdisciplinary (which I think is a major key for the balance of breadth/depth) approach which can bring breadth.
