From the point of view of the consumer, there is too much of a consumer-producer dichotomy in teacher education. Four distinct hopes and dreams, all interrelated, constitute selected aspects of this problem. First, teacher education should become a joint endeavor between inservice teachers and teacher educators possibly through the implementation of standards boards to encourage research, testing, and dissemination in the major problem areas of teaching. Second, teacher education should become an educational continuum in selection, initial preparation, induction into the profession, and graduate and continuing education by allowing inservice teachers to control their own continuing education, by encouraging local boards to contract with teacher education institutions for the establishment of new career programs for the disadvantaged, and by a reorganization of the certification process. Third, teacher education should be individualized and should emphasize sensitivity. Fourth, systematic orientation and induction of prospective teachers into teaching should be developed through the study of the sociology of the teaching profession in terms of essential teaching tasks or abilities. The youth of today, better educated, more sensitive, and more concerned, should be involved in the solving of these problems. (SM)
