Over the last three decades, there have been over 100 reports in Australia, focusing on the efficacy of teacher education. Many, critiquing initial teacher education as unsatisfactory and in need of reform. These longstanding and frequent criticisms provide challenges for those teacher educators, who endeavour to respond to and contest the critiques. These critiques, themselves, establish an enduring trend within education policy, as does the defensive response from those who provide teacher education programs. Additionally, it can be considered that these two opposing trends contribute to an unstable foundation for establishing and maintaining robust teacher education policy.
