Students learn not just from their classe but from their school's routines and rituals, especially about matters of character, Theodore and Nancy Sizer insist in this groundbreaking book. They convince us once again of what we may have forgotten: We need to create schools that constantly demonstrate a belief in their students. In such schools, children will not only meet important academic goals, but also acquire good intellectual habits and develop their own moral agency. Only then will students go on to make wise and principled decisions--even when their teachers are no longer watching.
