Özet

This study which aims to determine the level of achievement of the missions of the education faculties according to the teachers' views, employed with qualitative approach. The phenomenological method was applied in the study. The study group consist of 12 teachers who were working in the district of Altindag in Ankara province in 2015-2016 academic year. The data were collected by interview technique. In the interviews, information was gathered about the missions of education faculties, the level and reasons of effectiveness of missions, the effects of academic studies and cooperation between Ministry of National Education (MoNE) and universities. The data were analyzed by descriptive analysis. As a result, the teachers stated that the main mission of the education faculties is to train teachers. In addition, they pointed out that teachers who are new at training are inadequate in the pedagogical direction. They emphasized that academic work is far from the reality of schools and does not serve to solve problems. Finally, they pointed out that a multidimensional interaction between MoNE and universities would benefit from the selection of teacher candidates, their training and in-service training.
