What Is to be Done in Teacher Education? ['Every Communist Working in the Mass Movements Should be a Friend of the Masses and Not a Boss Over Them, an Indefatigable Teacher and Not a Bureaucratic Politician' (Mao, 1938) ].
Abbey, Brian; Ashenden, Dean
This paper is a critique of the Australian educational system from the Marxist viewpoint. The teaching philosophy of the schools of education is based upon capitalistic ideals, despite the emergence of more progressive educational practices. The connection between teaching, politics, and political activism is emphasized in this paper as a positive thing that should be recognized by teacher educators and instilled in fledgling teachers. The point is made that teachers are crucial to social change and that through correct attitudes society can be remodeled. (JD)
