What makes a school a "good school"? What are the hallmarks of a "quality education "? Grade point averages and standardized test scores? Class sizes? AP or arts offerings? Graduation and college placement rates? When we think about "high standards" in K-12 education, we usually aren't thinking about students' ability to understand, trust, and work with those of different races, income levels, home languages, and abilities? And yet there may be no standard more relevant to the public institution entrusted with empowering young people for their moral , professional, and civic lives in a diverse democracy.
