Book Description

20 Mar 2012 0415624576 978-0415624572

'Professional Capital is an incisive critique of the failing reform movements in many countries and a powerful manifesto for the only strategy that can and does work. 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 policy makers and practitioners alike think and act in education.'Sir Ken Robinson, educator and author

'I love the focus on professional capital and decisional capital. Hargreaves and Fullan give us a deep, practical understanding of ways to improve our schools and our school systems. This is new, exciting thinking.' Steve Munby, Chief Executive, National College for School Leadership

'This important book makes it clear that teaching stands at a crossroads between policy decisions that will help create a great profession for all teachers, or ones that will make teaching robotic and unexciting—hurting student learning for years to come.' Dennis Van Roekel, President, National Education Association

In this latest and most important collaboration, Andy Hargreaves and Michael Fullan set out a groundbreaking new agenda to transform the future of teaching and public education. Ideas-driven, evidence-based, and strategically powerful, Professional Capital combats the tired arguments and stereotypes of teachers and teaching. It includes action guidelines for classroom teachers, administrators, schools and districts, and state and federal leaders. This is a book that no one connected with schools can afford to ignore.

Product Description

Review

"Transforming education is one of the signature challenges of our times. Professional Capital sets out exactly and undeniably why the only way to do it is to honor and improve the profession of teaching. Written by two of the sharpest educational thinkers in the world, Professional Capital is an incisive critique of the failing reform movements in many countries and a powerful manifesto for the only strategy that can and does work. This book should revolutionize how policymakers and practitioners alike think and act in education. The price of failure is more than they or our children can afford." —Sir Ken Robinson, educator, author

"A must-read! Brimming with insights and action ideas, Hargreaves and Fullan lay out a clear and cogent plan to transform American public education, community by community. Professional Capital is a finely written and urgent argument for real change in how we do our business." —Dan Domenech, Executive Director, American Association of School Administrators

"This important book makes it clear that teaching stands at a crossroads between policy decisions that will help create a great profession for all teachers or ones that will make teaching robotic and unexciting—hurting student learning for years to come. Hargreaves and Fullan urge us not to stand aside or to wait. It is time, they say, for the teaching profession to be led by, for, and with teachers and for others to join in concerted action to support that transformation."—Dennis Van Roekel, President, National Education Association

"I love the focus on professional capital and decisional capital. Hargreaves and Fullan give us a deep, practical understanding of ways to improve our schools and our school systems. This is new, exciting thinking."—Steve Munby, Chief Executive, National College for School Leadership

"The teaching profession is at a crossroads. Grounded in global knowledge and experience, Professional Capital provides brilliant insight into what the next generation of teaching should look like. This book is a must-read for anybody thinking of teaching in the 21st century."—Pasi Sahlberg, Director General, CIMO at the Finnish Ministry of Education

"This is a really terrific book. It’s balanced, thoughtful, yet also passionate. Remarkable in its reconciling divergent positions in sensible ways. Among the best things Hargreaves and Fullan have done—which is no small compliment, I assure you!"—Ben Levin, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Education Leadership and Policy, OISE/University of Toronto.

"Anyone, anywhere who has anything to do with schools and the world of education will want to read, reflect, and react to the content of this book . . . a real treasure trove of riveting and informed insight into what really matters in teaching and learning. A powerful duo with a powerful challenge to the world of education. Professional Capital cries out for informed action—for the good of all children and their teachers."—Christopher Harrison, President, National Association of Head Teachers, England.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful text 19 Feb 2013
By Wasyl
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very useful and timely book. I found the final chapter a little disappointing in the light of the compelling arguments in favour of taking a longer-term growth orientated approach to pedagogy. A very weclome antidote to the quick-fix views to which children, teachers and schools are subjected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leading the way 4 Dec 2012
By Tim Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Professional Capital is just what teaching needs at this time--a solid look at practices and ideas that really will increase student learning. With near unanimous agreement in the failure of No Child Left Behind, the time is ripe for ideas that will truly improve education. Unfortunately, much of what passes for education reform doesn't meet the standard set by Hargreaves and Fullan in this excellent book. I highly recommend this book as a template for change in our schools.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for politicians, school leaders and teachers 3 April 2013
By Carsten Dyndale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Professional Capital" is A Must Read book on school reforms, change of teaching and learning cultures and classroom implementation of educational policies as wished by politicians, school leaders, teachers, students and parents. It is surprisingly sharp in its critique of politicians' search for quick measurable results, and it is equally solidly founded in presenting evidence and suggestions for a sustainable development of school cultures that will guarantee continuos improvement of institutionalised learning - the idea is the professional capital of collaborative teaching and learning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading for Anyone Who Thinks They Are In The Business of Improving Education 22 Oct 2013
By Christopher Lehman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A breathe of fresh air, for sure. Hargreaves and Fullan offer a clear, well researched, and solution-focused approach to growing schools. Responding to the current mania of business model pseudo-solutions to education's "ills," they place change firmly back in the hands of educators in an uplifting, though not light on challenging, way. A must read. Then give your copy away for someone else to read pronto.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professional Capital - Continuing the good work 22 May 2013
By Catherine Petersen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having recently read quite a number of articles from both Hargreaves and Fullan, dating back to the 1990's, Professional Capital built on their earlier work and extended it. It's a very easy read and educators at all levels will relate to it and will be challenged by it. It speaks directly to teachers, school and district/system leaders as well as State, National and International organisations. Professional Capital is what we've come to expect of Hargreaves and Fullan, and more!
