Solution Tree: Rick DuFour on the Importance of PLCs
In this video, Richard DuFour who is at the heart of professional learning communities discusses the biggest barrier to professional learning communities - that of changing the long-standing traditions that persist in education. If your school has a professional learning community, can you concur with what DuFour is saying? Have you experienced other obstacles to the PLC in your building? What do you believe is missing that would contribute to a more effective PLC? If your school does not have a Professional Learning Community, why do you feel you are missing this great opportunity "to ensure children learn rather than just giving them the opportunity to learn" to quote DuFour?
