Teacher education in Chile and the issues that intersect it are nowadays in the public debate of the Chilean society. This study aims at analyze key issues on teacher education-research, innovation, continuous education, university-school relationship, and management-from the perspective of academics, school-teachers and administrators. The study was conducted on 222 participants from Chilean universities and schools in the context of a non-experimental research design of cross-sectional and descriptive nature. The surveys and semi-structured interviews results show that it is necessary to strengthen the relationship between schools and universities, train teachers that achieve effective performances in the current socio-educational contexts and create the conditions for teachers to do research of their own pedagogical practices.
