Teachers and Assistants Working Together by Karen Vincett

"Few areas of education can equal the growth rate of that forteaching assistants over the past seven years, doubling to more than133,000 in England between 1997 to 2004. TAs are vital in thedevelopment of inclusive education, yet their status, pay, conditions,qualifications and their relationship with classroom teachers are all ofdeep concern in the majority of cases. This excellent, practical bookis a welcome and much-needed authoritative study of the allimportantrelationship between TA and teacher."
