The article focuses on the need for pre-service training for the core curriculum in the U.S. The core program is a reaction against intense specialization and certain weaknesses inherent in the elective system. It also has the purpose of relating education more closely and directly to the challenges, interests, needs, and problems of the learner in such a way that learning serves him better in life situations as well as in the future. At present schools dealing with the core curriculum must rely heavily on inservice training. This continues to be an important type of training. At the same time, teacher training institutions should exercise more leadership and initiative in preparing beginning teachers to assume a larger role in the core program.
