Abstract: 
This study examines student teachers’ views on their country and on National Education (NE), with the aim of promoting teachers’ understanding of the need for NE. A forty-item survey was administered to 1650 student teachers, to assess their sense of belonging, protective attitude, perceived right, ethnic tolerance and community and political involvement, as well as their perceptions of the importance and learning outcomes of NE. Significant differences were observed between the genders and between the various programme groups in terms of the student teachers’ responses, suggesting the need for a more comprehensive approach to NE in initial teacher education.
