"This book examines current education and suggests why and how teachers need to develop and exercise practical knowledge and understanding; how standards assessment alone cannot support this teacher 'formation'; and what good 'formation' might be. The nature of practical knowledge is analysed, using some concepts from the work of John Dewey." "Ruth Heilbronn offers an understanding of how the strengths of current teacher education can be retained but slimmed down, and teachers trusted to exercise their judgement wisely."--BOOK JACKET.
