I would like to thank the editor for the space to share my ideas about the selected problems of education. One of them is relative independence of college world and the world of elementary and high schools. There are in brief form described relative problems and suggested the possibilities how to solve them. What is the importance of research studies focused on the education for teachers or for future teachers? It is a very actual question, because the activity of researchers on education should also aim on the teachers and future teachers. But in many countries the world of academicians (in this case we are focused on the academicians working in the faculties of education) is detached from the world of teaching and problems of teachers. So, there is another question. Why the cooperation between academicians and teachers in some countries is functional and in some countries these two worlds are living separately? The mistake could be found in the activity of academicians. Their activity should also be focused on the improving of learning and teaching. The academicians have got many activities. They are teaching, predominantly future teachers, they are writing manuscripts (as we all are hoping), they are attending conferences, where they are changing kinds of information with their colleagues from other faculties. They are writing proposals of grants. They are working administrative and other kinds of jobs for department and other activities.
