Book Review: Moon, Bob. (2013). Teacher Education and the Challenge of Development: A Global Analysis. New York: Routledge.
This is a wide-ranging, ambitious book that sets out to explore the connectivities between teacher education and the development agenda, in the context of low and middle-income economies. In four distinct sections, it brings together authors who have engaged centrally with the debates over the last two decades to explore international dilemmas about teacher supply and teacher quality, contextualised within large population countries and other countries within the global South, and explores new strategies for teacher education and teacher development.
