Instead of trust, suspicion is the new norm within schools today. At one time teachers, students, parents, and educational leaders enjoyed the support of their community, but now many teachers feel scrutinized and betrayed. When Trust Matters was published in 2004, it sparked the interest of many researchers and practitioners, which not only made the book a success, but fostered new and exciting research. Utilizing this new research, the new edition promises to shift the conversation of school reform in significant ways. The second edition will expand upon the critical role of trust between teachers and students as well as trust between schools and their student’s families.
