Education reformers Deborah Meier; Theodore Sizer; and Nancy Sizer have published books that are acknowledged classics of education writing—books that have literally helped shape a movement centered on small schools; community; and alternative visions of teaching and learning. But as school principals; all three have also done another kind of writing; as well. Every week as principles they wrote short essays in their schools' newsletters to families. Sharp and accessible but intellectually ambitious; these little essays talk about everything from homework to discipline; from academic expectations to reading for pleasure. Keeping School collects the best of these gems from the two schools the authors have most recently run: an urban public elementary school in Boston; and an exurban charter secondary school thirty miles west in Devens; Massachusetts. There could be no better portrait of the kind of small school that Meier and the Sizers advocate—and the values behind them—than these elegant; thoughtful; intimate letters. They are organized around the themes of Authority; Community; Learning; and Standards; and the writers; who have been friends and colleagues for years; frame them with new essays on those larger topics. Reflecting decades of practical wisdom; this collection is a portrait of a different way of ''keeping school'' and an essential companion to books like Ted Sizer's Horace's Compromise; Ted and Nancy Sizer's The Students Are Watching; and Meier's The Power of Their Ideas.
