    There is a typo in this sentence:
    “… But if they aim to improve teaching and learning over the long term, then educators will have to get their heads out of the sand and acSocial Innovation Review, 30-35.knowledge that sustainable improvement requires both solidarity among colleagues and a solid grounding in research, expertise, and well-designed tools and protocols.”

    I was part of a self-directed study group and PLC involving teachers from six schools in our district. Professor Frank Crowther’s work on teacher leadership, educational change, and school improvement provided a blueprint for our work. The research on school-wide pedagogy out of USQ led to a yearlong research project at one school. The scholarly work of Hargreaves and others influenced our thinking and practices. We did all of this by choice. It was professionalism at its finest. D. Morrison Lachowiez EdD
