Originally published in 1987, this was the only available book to offer a critical interpretation of the current reform efforts in teacher education at the time. The focus is issues of professionalization, the role of the university and schools in the socialization of teachers, and the ideological and social assumptions that underlie educational theory. The book draws upon the sociology of knowledge, Marxist theory and political sociology.
