About the Book

Much of the material included here owes it inspiration to discussions held with groups of student teachers in the early 1970s. The book is written for such students and discusses issues such as the acquisition of knowledge, the value of examinations, dependency and religion in education. The book is intended as a thought provoker – to stimulate further discussion.
