Distrust characterizes much of the current political discourse in the United States today. It shapes our feelings about teachers, schools, and policies. In Distrust and Educational Change, Katherine Schultz argues that distrust—and the failure to recognize and address it—significantly contributes to the failure of policies meant to improve educational systems. The strategies the United States has chosen to enact reform engender distrust, and in so doing, undermine the conditions that enable meaningful educational change. In situations in which distrust—rather than trust—predominates, teachers and principals are reluctant to transform their educational practice.
