Praise for the book: 'The story of Ontario’s culture change and success will be important as an historical case. It should last a long time, especially as the movement toward profession development gains force. Even if Ontario stagnates, its story will be important for others moving forward on system change. Definitely the market is growing within the U.S. as evidence mounts that a) traditional professional development does not meet teacher learning demands and b) school districts that are making greatest gains are pursuing strategies that couple teacher learning and leadership. Ann Lieberman is an international authority on teaching and teacher policy, and is widely sought out as a speaker in the US and around the world. Her name will attract readers who want a practice-based, grounded approach to improving the conditions and effectiveness of teaching. I am not familiar with Lieberman’s co-authors, but I assume they will work as a team in creating a strong book that builds on evidence from Ontario –and that also references evidence from other systems in the US and around the world.' - Joan Talbert, Co-Director & Senior Research Scholar Emerita, Center for the Research on the Context of Teaching, Standford University, USA 'I strongly recommend the publication of this book. It documents and explores a highly unusual collaboration and provides a powerful model for what we might do to improve schools. It speaks to the challenges as well as the successes so that those who would like to participate in innovations inspired by this program can anticipate how differently configured cultural and historical aspects of schooling would need to be considered in moving toward a teacher-centered model, at a time when teachers in the US, for example, are regarded both as the problem for schools’ failures and the lynchpin of school reform. This is a hopeful book, with a very rich set of ideas for creating the contexts for teacher learning that emanate from trust of teachers and acknowledge their commitment to their work. Because the first author is an extremely well-known, prominent and highly respected educator whose contributions in this territory are recognized widely, I would expect there to be a significant audience for this book. Not only has Ann Lieberman written about teacher learning and some of the foremost teacher learning networks and projects in the US, she has also worked with educators abroad on related topics and has a good feel for the territory. She is a recognized authority in this field.' - Professor Susan Lytle, Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Messages for teachers, leaders and systemsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 January 2018
If, like me, you believe teachers are the solution to many of the challenges facing education systems, rather the problem, you will find much in this book to support your view. The authors, from their work with many teachers, and with reference to the research base, demonstrate why the power for school and system change resides in teachers themselves, rather than systems, structures and agendas, which so many of our political leaders tend to focus on when they determine they need to 'reform' education. They identify their own priorities for system and professional development and how this needs to start with teachers and teacher leadership. A view I am entirely in agreement with and which reflects my own experience as a school leader. Lots to learn here for everyone.
A must read!Reviewed in Canada on 29 January 2018
The work of Lieberman, Campbell, and Yashkina is masterful, clearly demonstrating how educators can and must be empowered in learning and leadership. Convincing in its research, it is a game changer for professional development and whole system reform!
