This is a draft of a lecture given on Tuesday 16th November 1999 as part of the IEA's Regulation Lecture series organised by the late Michael Beesley of the London Business School. This is reproduced with the kind permission of David Starkie

In this controversial book Geoffrey Partington 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.
