The task of the teacher is a complex and demanding one, requiring a wide range of skills and personal qualities, as well as extensive knowledge. The four volumes of these source books have been compiled to help in the professional development of primary school teachers. Volume 1 comprises extracts which examine primary education from historical, ideological, philosophical, sociological and psychological perspectives. Volume 2 deals with curriculum studies, Volume 3 with school organisation and management and Volume 4 with teaching and classroom studies. Due to the limitations of space, primary education has been confined to the education of children aged 5 to 11, though the compilers acknowledge that in doing so they may offend those teachers in nursery or middle schools who regard themselves, justifiably, as primary practitioners.
