Professor Andy Hargreaves and Professor Dennis Shirley

In their book, The Fourth Way, Andy Hargreaves and Dennis Shirley examine the three major trains of thought that have defined global educational policy and practice since the 1960s. They argue that the old methods of effecting social and educational change are no longer suited to the 21st century and offer a new ‘fourth way’ to new advancements in pupil learning and achievement.

The Fourth Way draws on first-hand experience and evidence of successful practices from across the world to show what works well, explain why it does so and what we can learn from these best examples. Hargreaves and Shirley offer a new vision and a plan for a more successful, challenging and sustainable educational future.
