Colleges rather than Schools

The repeated references to the need for larger colleges with improved facilities normally stress both the economic advantages of larger units and the possibilities for specialisation in staffing and in the courses offered. Taken together the references either implicitly or explicitly advocate a change in the nature of colleges of education, from narrowly based, small ‘schools’ for the training of teachers to broadly based, larger ‘colleges’ for their education, from the treatment of future teachers as ‘pupils’ to their treatmentas ‘students’. Professor L. J. Lewis in his paper ‘The Nature and Content of the Curriculum in Teachers Colleges’ in New Directions in Teacher Education (128) stresses the need to treat teachers in training as adults.
