Teacher Change

author: Michael Fullan, Andy Hargreaves
description: "The greatest problem in teaching is not how to get rid of the "deadwood," but how to create, sustain, and motivate good teachers throughout their careers. Interactive professionalism is the key to this. For us it entails: discretionary judgment as the heart of professionalism; collaborative work cultures; norms of continuous improvement where new ideas are sought inside and outside one's setting; reflection in, on, and about practice in which individual and personal development is honored, along with collective development and assessment; and greater mastery, efficacy, and satisfaction in the profession of teaching."
