Abstract:

"In this exploration of trust and schools, Meier critiques the ideology of testing and at the same time puts forward a very different positive vision, forged in the success stories of small public schools she and her colleagues have created in Boston and New York. These nationally acclaimed schools are built, famously, around trusting teachers to use their own judgment, inviting parents into a close relationship with the school, and surrounding children with adults who know them well."--BOOK JACKET.
