DEBORAH MEIER has spent more than four decades as educator, learning theorist, writer and public advocate.  She has inspired teachers everywhere to create learning environments that foster thoughtful habits of mind, and enhance democracy and equity.


She founded and directed of a network of highly successful public schools in East Harlem, including Central Park East Secondary School, from which more than 90% of entering students went on to college. From 1992 to 1996, Meier served as co-director of the Coalition Campus Project, redesigning two large failing NYC high schools, and creating a dozen new small Coalition schools.  From 1997 to 2005 she was the founder and principal of the Mission Hill School, a K-8 Boston Public Pilot school in the Roxbury community.


The schools Meier created are national exemplars of reform.  She has received honorary degrees from Bank Street, Brown, Bard, Clark, Teachers College, Dartmouth, Harvard, Hebrew Union, Hofstra, The New School, Lesley College, SUNY Albany, UMASS Lowell, and Yale.  She was awarded a MacArthur “genius” Fellowship in 1987.
