In this controversial book, the author looks at the nature and history of teacher education in England and Wales. Starting with a discussion of theories of teaching, he explores the various ideologies and the policies implemented by governments in the post-war period. In the later sections of the book he presents the results of interviews with education practitioners before concluding with a plea to government to free up the education system as a whole and teacher education in particular.
