Book News Annotation:

To counter calls for a cut in education spending during the economic troubles, and even voices still echoing from a decade ago about more student sweat and more teacher accountability, Hargreaves and Shirley (both education, Boston College) propose a direction for education reform that weaves together the successes from the American past and from foreign experience, and lets loose of notions and practices--however cherished--that do not further the education process. Small numbers loom large in their plan: three ways of change, three paths of distraction, four horizons of hope, and the title. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In The Fourth Way, Andy Hargreaves and Dennis Shirley discuss the educational change efforts within the U.S. and abroad over the last 25 years and how and why they have fallen short. Building on this history and using success stories from around the globe, this book offers a compelling perspective of what has worked and made a difference in educational reform.

The authors outline horizons of optimism, providing evidence and examples of change efforts that have resulted in sustainable and beneficial outcomes reflected in improved student achievement and positive school cultures. Readers will find a clear set of steps and strategies that districts and schools can take to implement and achieve similar outcomes.

This innovative vision of educational change responds to the dramatic problems and dynamic challenges facing educators in the 21st century and incorporates the best of what we have learned from the past without retreating to, or reinventing old, failed approaches.

Synopsis:

This book analyzes three previous major change efforts, outlines their strengths and limitations, and offers a successful and sustainable fourth way to integrate teacher professionalism, community engagement, government policy, and accountability.
