Abstract: Teacher preparation is the foundation of any society's education, so the various aspects of an educator's preparation can play critical roles in the outcome of his or her pupils learning. Looking at the top performing countries in eighth grade math from around the world using the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), Japan, Israel, Finland, United States and England must be implementing unique tactics during teacher preparation that have enabled them to be among the top ten performing countries. This article looks at certain variables that are possibly impacting the quality and outcome of teachers' performances, such as a teacher's student teaching experience, the variety of preparation programs available, teacher salary and other significant factors.
