Abstract

In England and Wales, government proposals for teacher education continue to emphasize 'training' linked directly to practical application, perhaps reducing teachers and
prospective teachers to little more than what Giroux & Mclaren (1987) call pedagogical clerks who are compelled to teach in ways that are measurable, controllable, and
predictable. This provides evidence that the scientization of teaching (see Carr & Kemmis, 1986) more broadly conceived, is indeed durable to the point of being an unassailable truth.
