Award for Hargreaves

book jacket_Hargreaves_05012012Lynch School of Education Thomas More Brennan Professor Andy Hargreaves and his co-author Michael Fullan have been named recipients of the 2015 Grawemeyer Award in Education from the University of Louisville for the ideas expressed in their book, Professional Capital: Transforming Teaching in Every School (Teachers College Press). In their book, the authors state that teachers will automatically elevate their own competency when placed in a team environment that encourages individual contributions, group interaction and continuous learning and that this approach works much better than using performance-based education models to reward or punish individual teachers. The University of Louisville presents the Grawemeyer prizes annually for outstanding works in music composition, ideas improving world order, psychology and education and gives a religion prize jointly with Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
