''The evidence, measures, and interpretations of why and how collective trust operates in schools is important as administrators and others seek ways to form productive school communities that have as their central goal the academic and social welfare of the students.'' --From the Foreword by Barbara Schneider, Michigan State University
''Collective Trust is the most comprehensive review of the research on school trust. The book is reader friendly and enlightening in its synthesis of the literature on trust, a critical area of knowledge for reforming schools. It is must reading for all educational leaders as well as researchers seeking to understand student achievement.'' --Cecil Miskel, Dean and Professor Emeritus, School of Education, University of Michigan
''A profoundly important analysis of the DNA of productive schoolwork and educational improvement trust. And the most comprehensive, elegant, well-grounded, and useful volume to date on the critical concept of collective trust.'' --Joseph F. Murphy, Frank W. Mayborn Chair, Vanderbilt University's Peabody College
The culmination of nearly three decades of research, Collective Trust offers new insight and practical knowledge on the social construction of trust for school improvement. The authors argue that ''collective trust''' is not merely an average trust score for a group, but rather an independent concept with distinctive origins and consequences. The book demonstrates that schools are organizations that require environments characterized by high levels of collective trust to be effective. Including an historical overview, an exhaustive review of the empirical research, and implications for school reform policy and leadership, this is the most comprehensive resource to date on the issue of collective trust.
