In the colleges of education, residence rules are the major issue between students and authorities. The majority of the 157 colleges of education in England and Wales are largely residential, and most see community living as a fundamental and valuable feature of teacher training. Joan Brothers and Stephen Hatch in their Residence and Student Life report typical comments by college principals. ‘We aim for one corporate family with ideals in common wanting to share life together,’ said one, and ‘they get a lot out of residence which is useful to teaching,’ said another.
