Transforming teaching

Lynch School of Education Thomas More Brennan Professor Andy Hargreaves and his co-author Michael Fullan have been selected as education authors of the month by Routledge Press, the British publisher of their new book, Professional Capital: Transforming Teaching in Every School.  Published in the U.S. by Columbia University’s Teachers College Press, Professional Capital lays out a new agenda to transform the future of teaching and public education. The book combats old arguments and stereotypes about teachers and the teaching profession, instead offering ideas-driven, evidence-based strategies for classroom teachers, administrators, schools and districts, and state and federal leaders. In praising the book, British author Sir Ken Robinson, said, “Hargreaves and Fullan set out exactly and undeniably why the only way to move forward is to honor and improve the profession of teaching. This book should revolutionize how policymakers and practitioners alike think and act in education.”
