Relational Trust Broken ... Submitted by a member
Trust is a key ingredient for success in any school. It is defined to mean that the trust is built by multiple interactions among parties in service of a common goal whether it involves administrators working with teachers to accomplish the school's goals, teachers working with students to reach instructional goals, or teachers and families working together. The degree of relational trust present in a school is a function of the school's relationships with the broader community, the school's relationship with parents, and professional relationships among educators and students in schools. Relationships and trust are necessary for school improvement, and issues of trust can either support or undermine the school improvement process. The mayor, school committee, and you, Dr. Durkin, have broken our trust.
