Overview

Addresses a subject of common interest in developed countries - the apparently diminishing role of universities in the education of teachers. There is pressure to redesign teacher education, an on-going struggle between those who see the need to strengthen the knowledge base of teachers and those who favour learning on the job; there is a perceived need to define precisely what teachers need to know and be able to do and at the same time there is relaxation of entry standards for students entering the profession in an attempt to relieve the chronic shortage of teachers. This situation is prevalent in the USA, in the UK, Europe and Australia. The struggle over who should control the preparation of teachers is the significant emerging issue in education, and could change the whole structure of the teacher preparation.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Before his early death in 1997, Roth (teacher education, California State U.-Long Beach) contacted teacher educators he considered to be the best in the country and solicited essays on specific topics of their expertise. They argue for the necessity of the university's role in preserving and further developing the teaching profession, and set out its unique contribution to the process of preparing teachers. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
