Report of the Study Seminar to U.S.S.R., Dec. 7-23, 1973.
Holloway, Ruth Love
Following a discussion of education in the Soviet Union, this paper relates some observations on teacher education in the U.S.S.R. Among the observations noted are that teacher education as a discipline is controlled by the central government; teachers are prepared similarily for both elementary and secondary levels; teacher preparation occurs in the state universities, pedagological research institutes, and advanced centers and professional growth centers, with the majority of the teachers being educated in the pedagological research institutes; teachers are in an institute for five years and specialize in an area; preference at an institute is given to people who have had experience in the working world; no separate degrees are given and a prospective teacher is required to write a thesis in his area of specialty; prospective teachers by the time of graduation have had at least six months teaching experience; the educational system places high priority on supporting students financially; all graduates are guaranteed a teaching position; school administrators come from the ranks of "best teachers"; and all teachers are required to return for retraining once every five years with pay for attendance.
