Abstract

The founding visions of the first two Principals of the constituent colleges, both pioneers in teacher education, are summarized and read as combining ideas both specific to their time and of lasting relevance. Some contemporary criticisms are outlined. This summary then leads to a focus on their opposition to the notorious Revised Code of 1862, which introduced stringent Government controls over education, including teacher education, operating largely through new forms of finance. Implications are drawn for contemporary trends.
