Abstract

For the past twenty years, the training of teachers in England has consisted of little more than instruction in 'delivering' the National Curriculum. In this piece, Derek Gillard argues that there are now encouraging signs of a resurgence of interest in the history of education. He reviews the new edition of Clyde Chitty's Education Policy in Britain, which looks at the history of education from a political perspective, and summarises the content of his own website, which is devoted to the history of Education in England.
