"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.'
Publishers Weekly

'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.

MacArthur Award-winning educator Deborah Meier is author of The Power of Their Ideas (Beacon / 3113-5 / $14.00 pb) and Will Standards Save Public Education? (Beacon / 0441-3 / $12.00 pb). She lives in Hillsdale, New York, and Boston, Massachusetts.
