Size and Facilities of Colleges of Education

Criticism of the small size of many colleges of education and their lack of appropriate facilities is general. The Report of the Committee of Investigation into the Working of Teacher Training Colleges (140) in Ceylon advocates colleges with a minimum of three hundred students and a maximum of five hundred, and urges the need for a considerable improvement in their buildings and such amenities as workshops and laboratories. Similar emphasis is to be found in E. A. Pires’ Primary Teacher Training in Asia (76) where the author looks at the correlation between good material facilities and good education, and criticizes the lack of adequate libraries, audio-visual equipment, craft shops, and laboratory facilities.
