The Students Are Watching: Schools and the Moral Contract

The Students Are Watching: Schools and the Moral Contract
Theodore R. Sizer

Theodore R. Sizer & Nancy Faust Sizer

In this groundbreaking book, Theodore and Nancy Sizer insist that students learn not just from their classes but from their school's routines and rituals, especially about matters of character. They convince us once again of what we may have forgotten: that we need to create schools that constantly demonstrate a belief in their students.

"In the age of Columbine, [the Sizers] may offer a path out the deep sense of adolescent alienation that we are only beginning to recognize."
-James Traub, The New York Times Book Review

Theodore Sizer has been dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, headmaster of Phillips Academy, and University Professor Emeritus at Brown University. Nancy Sizer spent twenty-five years as a classroom teacher in public and private secondary schools and, since the school opened in 1995, has supervised Harvard interns at the Francis W. Parker Charter Essential School in Massachusetts, where the Sizers most recently served as acting co-principals.

Gozemba is the coauthor of Pockets of Hope: How Students and Teachers Change the World. The former editor of Sojourner: The Women's Forum, Karen Kahn also edited Frontline Feminism: Essays from Sojourner's First Twenty Years.
