Summary Note "'In teachers we trust' presents a compelling vision, offering practical ideas for teachers, school leaders, and teacher educators wishing to develop teacher-powered education systems, such as the trust-based system found in Finland. Based on their research and work in Finland, Pasi Sahlberg and Timothy D. Walker suggest seven key principles for building a culture of trust in schools: Educate teachers to think; Mentor the next generation; Free within a framework; Cultivate responsible learners; Play as a team; Share the leadership; Trust the process. The authors illustrate what these principles look like in action, including offering clinical training for future teachers, encouraging student agency, and fostering a collaborative professionalism among educators. Both teachers know firsthand the results of applying these trust-based principles in Finland, where there is low teacher turnover and educators enjoy a high social prestige and shorter school days. Teachers there are free from census-based standardized testing and external classroom inspections, leaving room for a balanced whole-child curriculum emphasizing life skills and the arts." - Book jacket.
