Announcing the Professional Capital Survey—a new digital tool to improve the teaching profession!

The book that Andy Hargreaves and I wrote, Professional Capital, is a new way of thinking about the profession. Professional capital refers to qualities within and among professionals that we can and should invest in with our time, effort, commitment and ingenuity. The human capital of individuals’ knowledge and skill is a precious asset. The decisional capital of effective judgment needs deliberate investment and development over time. The social capital of the teaching profession is about the power of what teachers can achieve together by moving ideas around and taking collective responsibility for everyone’s success.

There is Something Different About 2014

Insight from Michael

I have been working on educational change for almost 50 years. There is something different about 2014. There is a grand convergence spontaneously erupting. I think it is a natural dynamic of push and pull. The push, to put it directly, is a combination of the boredom and alienation of students and teachers. Students won’t wait, and teachers can’t wait. It is simply intolerable for students and teachers to be at school every day when increasing numbers of them would rather be somewhere else.
