Quick Overview

This themed issue raises related questions concerning the place of psychology in schools and colleges. What impact does it have on teaching undergraduates? Are pre-tertiary courses teaching the right skills and knowledge? To what extent do pre-tertiary courses in psychology prepare students for university psychology or give them useful qualifications? Should they be a prerequisite or are they a hindrance?
