This text examines four key areas of teacher education. These are: theories, models and ideologies of teacher education; the control of teacher education by the state, and the role of schools and HE; cultural perspectives and the education of teachers; and continuities in teacher education.


'The collection is well edited and very well introduced; the contributions are readable, often highly so, and almost all are tightly focussed. This is an important book for all involved in the leadership and management of teacher education systems around the world, whatever the current system and wherever in the world.' - British Journal of Educational Technology
