Teacher Education in Queensland. Report of the Committee Appointed to Review Teacher Education in Relation to the Needs and Resources of Queensland.
Queensland Dept. of Education, Brisbane (Australia).
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a report by the teacher education review committee of Queensland discussing teacher education in relation to the needs and resources of Queensland, with recommendations for the future. Also discussed are the quality and supply of teachers with regard to entrance requirements, facilities, courses, degrees, and recruitment. The committee recommended that selection for teacher education courses should consider academic qualifications, personality factors, and physical attributes. Primary teachers are trained in teachers' colleges, which will have completed the transition to three year courses by 1971. Statistics are presented in the report noting teachers in training, teacher/student ratio, number of vacancies, and other projections. The Committee also recommended that awards should be made at the conclusion of the teacher training course. In-service education is needed at all levels of the system and in a wide range of activities associated with curriculum revision, school organization, and administration to maintain progressive development.
