Abstract

The role of teacher education has become increasingly important in the broader society in recent years as public concerns with the quality of education in secondary schools have been extended to the colleges and universities. Particularly, in geography, such concerns have been increasing because of the rather low status of geography among subjects in high school social studies and its relatively poor public image in this country. Ineffective classroom teaching is often blamed as a primary reason for students' lack of interest in geography, if we disregard the major effect of a highly competitive national college entrance examination in which geography is not considered a major subject. Some of this blame should be shared with colleges and universities where teachers are trained.
