Abstract: 

Concerns about the declining quality of education in the school system are being constantly raised in the media by parents, employers, university professors, and others. Such concerns have been the catalyst for much of the thrust toward school reform in Trinidad and Tobago as well as in more developed countries such as the USA (Holmes Group 1986). It is generally recognized however, that school reform can only take place if teachers are equipped to perform the tasks demanded of them. Therefore the preparation of teachers is crucial to the success of school reform and to improvement in the quality of education.
