New York, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2016
Educator and best-selling author Dr. Richard Dufour was a public school educator for 34 years, serving as a teacher, principal, and superintendent. Dufour is recognized as one of the leading authorities on helping school practitioners implement the Professional Learning Communities at Work process in their schools and districts.
Dufour believes the harsh policies being directed at US public schools have failed because they were based on “faulty assumptions.”
Dufour was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer last year. He hopes his book will persuade policy makers, educators and parents that the best way forward for sustainable school improvement is to build “the capacity of educators to work as members of a professional learning community.”
“We must change the narrative of what it means to be a teacher from the current story that paints uncaring educators as the problem of American education to one in which teachers are recognized as the crucial nation builders that they are.” — Richard Dufour
Dr. Richard Dufour investigates the state of education today in his comprehensive critically-acclaimed book, In Praise of American Educators – And How They Can Become Even Better.
