In Teachers We Trust: The Finnish Way to World-Class Schools (Hardback)

£17.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

In the spring of 2018, thousands of teachers across the United States-in states like Oklahoma, Kentucky and Arizona-walked off their jobs while calling for higher wages and better working conditions. Ultimately, these American educators trumpeted a simple request: treat us like professionals. Teachers in many other countries feel the same way as their US counterparts.



In Teachers We Trust presents a compelling vision, offering practical ideas for educators and school leaders wishing to develop teacher-powered education systems. It reveals why teachers in Finland hold high status and shows what the country's trust- based school system looks like in action.



Pasi Sahlberg and Timothy D. Walker suggest seven key principles for building a culture of trust in schools, from offering clinical training for future teachers to encouraging student agency to fostering a collaborative professionalism among educators. In Teachers We Trust is essential reading for all teachers, administrators and parents who entrust their children to American schools.
