The Institute of Education 1902-2002

by Richard Aldrich | 01 October 2002
PAPERBACK
This centenary history provides the first comprehensive study of the Institute of Education, University of London, the United Kingdom's premier institution for the study of education. The story is essentially one of change. Founded in 1902 as the London Day Training College to provide teachers for the capital's elementary schools, a century later the Institute has become a college of the University of London, a national and international postgraduate centre for educational enquiry with 4,400 students from 80 countries. Drawing upon a wide range of sources, including previously unused archival material and formal interviews with key figures, Richard Aldrich sets the Institute's own story within metropolitan, national and international contexts. The result is an elegantly written history, characterized by substantial scholarship and analysis and enlivened by illustrations and anecdote. Above all, the pages of this book are peopled with some of the most influential, and at times controversial, figures of the twentieth-century world of education - including Sidney Webb, John Adams, Sophie Bryant, Percy Nunn, Cyril Burt, Susan Isaacs, Marion Richardson, Fred Clarke, Joseph Lauwerys, Richard Peters, Basil Bernstein, William Taylor, Ann Oakley and Peter Mortimore. This book will appeal not only to all those connected with the Institute of Education, past, present and future, but also to anyone with an interest in teaching and learning, higher education, educational research and the making of educational policy.
