Inservice education and mentoring is certainly needed and a plus. How about holding colleges and universities accountable for preparing teachers to handle every-day practical matters and not only teaching to, but truly understanding the whole child? How about not allowing everyone and anyone to obtain the degree? Especially those how do not study but party and get help from classmates or to pass their tests. The mentoring and assessing of teachers should be done well before they go out in the field. They should be counseled out or not even admitted if they do not have what it takes to deal with the whole child. The test for graduating should be the ability to teach - not just the ability to learn material that tells you how to teach. (Hmm, kind of like a student not just learning the material for the test but actually learning how to think and how to learn.)
