So what type of teachers do we want? Where I am from, the British government seem to want ones with high level degrees, higher levels of maths and english than previously and that can be qualified to do the job in a matter of months with on the job training. Are these the right priorities? I am sure they would say they are just the start but the government here in the UK through the policies of Michael Gove believe that the present problem of education and the future of our country will be solved with employing methodologies succesful in the past. Seemingly ignoring the changing world that we now live in and that schools like any organisation need to be fit for purpose i.e. producing students for beyond 2012, not for 1950.
