"A wise and beautiful book that elevates the level of debate on tests and school reform." -Jonathan Kozol, author of Savage Inequalities
A visionary look at trust and schools that takes on some of today's hottest education issues-from testing to small schools-all grounded in stories of the innovative and hugely successful public schools Deborah Meier has famously founded.
'A rich, nuanced reflection on trust and schooling that examines trust's many layers. . . . A terrific, important book.'
—Mike Rose, author of Possible Lives>
'A passionate, jargon-free plea for a rerouting of educational reform, sure to energize committed parents, progressive educators and maybe even a politician or two.'
'Listen carefully to Deborah Meier's In Schools We Trust: She speaks to the heart of a school-and of democracy itself.'
—Theodore R. Sizer, author of Horace's Compromise and founder of the Coalition of Essential Schools.
