Abstract

The barrier in teacher education is looked upon as a crisis point at which the effective functioning and development of the system is hindered but there is a potential opportunity to get over such a predica-ment. To make a barrier an incentive for further development it must be sensed as such at the level of cognition and evaluation of the complexity and ambiguity of situation. According to the survey conducted by the Centre of teacher education development the problems of a young teacher are those of theoretical and methodological levels. The reasons for such a situation are diverse. The article in question will exam-ine the side-effects of universitization in teacher education resulting in the shift from practical to funda-mental preparation. The phenomenon when fundamental disciplines are studied to the detriment of special professional ones is not unprecedented. And the way out consists in recreation of the cultural function of education rather than reduction of fundamental courses. The article proposes the ways to overcome the obstacles in teacher education development with regard to the problem of universitization. This will make the educational system geared to the actual needs of the individual, society and state.
