“An inspiring call to action. . . . The Way Forward provides a detailed knowledge base that allows educators to avoid the PLC Lite pitfall and secure the bright future of American education that beckons us.”

From the Foreword by Robert Eaker

“With a combination of deeply researched evidence and personal passion, Muhammad points readers to a shining star of improved teaching, learning, and leadership.”

Douglas Reeves, author and education expert

“Muhammad writes, ‘I am concerned that our profession is losing its soul.’ I, too, am concerned, and I am deeply grateful that Muhammad helps steer us back to the original promise of the public school system—meeting the needs of all children—which will help us find our soul once again.”

Tina H. Boogren, author and education expert

“Muhammad calls us to action by shining a light on how PLC at Work will serve educators in these modern times. When implemented with courageous and right actions, the result is the sustained success we seek for ourselves and generations to follow.”

Timothy D. Kanold, author and education expert

“In The Way Forward, Anthony Muhammad provides a scholarly time machine grounded in history and research, with a strong reality check. In his customary eloquent and powerful style, Muhammad connects the past, present, and future, making it abundantly clear to educators around the world that failure to embrace and implement the PLC at Work process in schools will result in dire consequences for the students we serve. Simply put, this book is a must-read for educators seeking a path to address the collateral damage students have experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic and for any education community aspiring for excellence in their daily work with students.”

Luis F. Cruz, author and education expert

The Way Forward challenges us as educators to embrace courage as we face unparalleled challenges. It provides clarity and compels commitment to work and become whole while learning in community. Anthony Muhmmad inspires that The Way Forward is to be the professionals humanity needs, advocate for a system that delivers on its promise, and become allies for all—including ourselves.”
