The aim of this study is to determine the views of academicians, teachers, and pre-service teachers on primary school teachers and to bring a critical perspective to primary school teaching. The case study design, one of the qualitative research designs, was used in this study. The study group of research consists of four academicians, eight class teachers, and four pre-service teachers in the fourth year of the Department of Primary Education in Duzce University in the 2018-2019 academic year. In the research, "interview" and "focus group interview" techniques were used as data collection method. Content analysis method was used in the analysis of the data obtained from the research. At the end of the research, it was concluded that the qualifications the primary school teachers should have are general culture, primary school management, guidance, communication, personal/professional development, personal/moral characteristics, pedagogical knowledge/skill, technological knowledge/skill, and field knowledge/skill. Furthermore, findings revealed that the necessary education is not given in the education faculties, primary school teachers are not successful in all academic courses and inadequate in skill courses, and primary school teachers cannot be successful in all areas. Given these, it is necessary to go into branching in the field (academic and especially skill courses) or class basis.
