A History of the Training of Teachers in Scotland.
This document describes the historical evolution of teacher training in Scotland from the 19th century to the present. It traces the origin of the early normal schools, which were byproducts of the factory age, their subsequent development as church institutions, and their transformation into multipurpose colleges at the beginning of the present century. Later sections show how teacher education has changed and is still changing in response to school needs. Chapters include the following: (a) "The Scottish Tradition of Education;" (b) "The Pioneers of Teacher Training;" (c) "State control, 1841-1872;" (d) "Response to Challenge, 1872-1900;" (e) "The New Pattern of Teacher Training, 1900-1921;" (f) "The Inter-War Period;" and (g) "Expansion and Reorganization since 1945." Extensive appendixes are included on the following topics: (a) education legislation, (b) leading officials connected with teacher training, (c) short biographies of George Combe and John Kerr, (d) teacher salaries and school statistics, and (e) examples of university courses in education.
