An Overview of Teachers' Centres in England and Wales.
Mulhern, John D.
Teachers' centers have been established in England and Wales for the purpose of curriculum development and inservice teacher education. The philosophical basis for the centers are the principles that the motive power in curriculum development should come primarily from local groups of teachers accessible to each other and that there should be effective and close collaboration between teachers and all those who are able to offer cooperation. The centers are controlled by teachers and supported by local tax money. The report highlights the current status and organization of teachers' centers at Cheshire, Cornwall, and Surrey; the stated purpose of the centers; and the types of centers. The future direction of the centers is discussed in light of the recommendations made by a Committee of Inquiry into Teacher Education and Training (the James Report) and an official government White Paper.
