“It's the curiosity that drives me. It's making a difference in the world that prevents me from ever giving up.”
Deborah Meier

“There's no way to guarantee that any particular system will work, will work forever, or will not need endless revising. But until we get over the idea that there is a one-size-fits-all solution to schools, above all for schools that are trustworthy enough to do the job well, we won't allow ourselves to do the difficult long-term work of redesigning the system, not just the schools.”
Deborah Meier

“When we talk with school officials and local politicians about restructuring large high schools, the first thing they worry about is what will happen to the basketball or baseball teams, the after-school program, and other sideshows; that the heart of the school, its capacity to educate, is missing, seems almost beside the point.”
Deborah Meier, The Power of Their Ideas: Lessons from America from a Small School in Harlem
