Throughout the world, members of the education research community have
long decried the lack of attention to research and scholarship that is evident in most
education policies promulgated by state, provincial, and national legislatures. The

This study focuses on how teachers are being prepared through the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) at three different universities. Documentary and oral sources, a small survey, focus groups and interviews, provide the basis for an analysis of the context and history of each institution: the profile of staff and students in teacher-education courses; and the ways in which issues of diversity are addressed. A well-grounded set of recommendations provides direction for the road ahead.
Practically all public schools (99 percent) offer nutrition
education somewhere within the curriculum, and many integrate it
within the total curriculum (70 percent). Nutrition education is

(table 1). Although nutrition education is an active area, the
intensity and quality of the nutrition messages students are
receiving is not known.
In addition to clarifying educational outcomes as they relate to workforce needs and
expectations, competencies are critical to linking course learning objectives to the SPH/PHP
instructional objectives. The CEPH criteria require each SPH/PHP to state a mission that is

finding bodes well for Nigeria, a country with considerable linguistic and cultural diversity.
