International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, v11 n5 p1055-1064 2016
The purpose of this study is to put forth the problems encountered in education of teachers and solution recommendations in accordance with the opinions of faculty of education students. Within this framework, the opinions of 182 first grade students from the departments of classroom, social sciences, science and mathematics teaching at Bartin University, Faculty of Education were obtained in writing through questionnaires which list open ended questions. The opinions then were sorted by their frequencies and the findings obtained were interpreted. According to the students, one year internship period for the new teachers is insufficient, the profession of teaching is held in low regard by the society, faculties of education is crowded, and applied courses are offered insufficiently and these are among the problems encountered in teacher education. On the other hand, offering hands-on (applied) education at the faculties of education, requiring oral interviews in addition to written KPSS examination (Public Personnel Selection Examination) in teacher assignments, accepting students to the faculties of education by applying aptitude, knowledge and skills tests, ensuring those who love the profession of teaching works at this field and offering courses which aim increasing school experience of the teacher candidates for longer periods are listed among the measures that need to be taken by the students.
