Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, students’ well-being was an increasingly prominent concern among educators, as issues related to mental health, global crises, and social media became impossible to ignore. But what, exactly, does well-being look like, and why is it so important, and what can school systems do to promote it? World-renowned education experts Andy Hargreaves and Dennis Shirley have collaborated on a timely resource for teachers, leaders, and policymakers: Well-Being in Schools: Three Forces That Will Uplift Your Students in a Volatile World (ASCD, 2021). Hargreaves and Shirley offer an in-depth exploration of the underlying ideas and research findings related to well-being, coupled with examples of policies and implementations from around the globe. Hargreaves is professor emeritus at the Lynch School of Education and Human Development. Shirley is professor at the Lynch School. They are also co-authors of Five Paths of Student Engagement and The Fourth Way: The Inspiring Future for Educational Change.
