A new book on Teacher Education in England

A forthcoming book by Tony Brown, Teacher Education in England - A Critical Interrogation of School-based Training documents the recent School Direct Research Project.

"This book records and analyses many failures of contemporary teacher education policy in England. It is evident that short-termist, marketised manipulation cannot guarantee the quality or supply of teachers which the nation needs. More stable, educationally principled approaches, based on respect for teacher expertise and constructive partnerships between schools and universities, are clearly called for." Andrew Pollard
