The James Report Revisited
Taylor, William
Oxford Review of Education, v34 n3 p291-311 Jun 2008
The 1972 Report of the Government's Committee of Inquiry into Teacher Education and Training (James Report) suggested radical changes, many of which conflicted both with the interests of existing providers and with emerging policies on the organisation of higher education. Its proposals concerning in-service education, whilst generally welcomed, fell victim to the demographic and economic problems of the 1970s. However, the Committee's emphasis on the importance of partnership between all those involved in teacher education, and particularly the involvement of serving teachers, to which Dr Harry Judge had as a member of the Committee made important contributions, became a major theme of teacher education policy in succeeding decades.
