The authors summarize the differences indicated across the four curriculum areas sampled: English teacher educators seemed mostly concerned about political interference in educational matters; history teacher educators seemed mostly concerned about the status of knowledge in the proposed curriculum; a maths educators had concerns around the rationale for selection of curricular content; and science educators were concerned about personal relevance and the pedagogical implications of over-selection of content.

This article reports on a qualitative interview study with eleven pre-service primary teachers in Queensland. The study examines their career plans, exploring whether, and how, a global imagination motivates this next generation of teachers.

The findings are used to reflect on the highly localised governance of pre-service teacher preparation.
