Identifying Best Practices with Andy Hargreaves


What are the best practices in education reform? Andy Hargreaves—educator, author, and holder of the Thomas More Brennan Chair in Education at Boston College—suggests we can overcome the educational problems that plague the United States by asking this very question. Dr. Hargreaves explains that with a new approach to educating students—an approach based on key principles, a different way forward, that’s not all about the markets and bureaucratic imposition, but involves more community—real, positive change can occur within schools.

The change Andy Hargreaves speaks about in this interview with Curtis Linton enforces the notion that there are no silver bullets to achieve sustained, deep school reform. Rather, it’s about changing deep-rooted mindsets and letting change initiatives take root and develop over time.
