Case studies are presented in the third section illustrating problems and solutions in teacher education in various parts of the world: (1) Belgium (John Owen); (2) British Columbia (Anne MacLaughlin and Peter Murphy); (3) Latin America (Pilar Aguilar and Gonzalo Retamal); (4) physical education in several countries (Michael Mawer); (5) England and France (Robert Weil); and (6) Great Britain (Keith Watson).
