Teacher training is not just a UK issue
As an entrant to teaching I believed that teaching was the most important profession. Whilst law and medicine might be said to correct our mistakes, teaching was helping to lay the foundation for healthy and well-balanced lives. I can't say that twenty years of practice helped me to realise that potential; I was happy to leave. It is interesting nonetheless to read that the same issues of qualification, training, support and consistency are evident in the US. I write as an ex-English teacher, UK based.
