Teacher education must become more sensitive to the emerging demands from the school system. For this it must prepare the teachers for the roles of being an:
1. Encouraging, supportive and human facilitator in teaching-learning situation to enable learners (students) to discover their talents.
2. Active member of a group of persons who makes a conscious effort for curricular renewal so that it is relevant to changing social needs and the personal need of learners. So the teachers need to be prepared to
i. Care for children and should love to be with them.
ii. Understand children within social, cultural and political contexts.
iii. Be receptive and be constantly learning.
iv. View learning as a search for meaning out of personal experience and knowledge generation as a continuously evolving process of reflective learning.
v. View knowledge not as an external reality embedded in textbooks but as constructed in the shared contexts of teaching-leaning and personal experience.
vi. Our responsibility towards society and work to build a better world.
vii. Analyse the curriculum framework, policy implication and texts.
