Most expert/novice studies frequently find that it takes about 10 years to be an expert at something, so i'm skeptical that peak effectiveness could be reached earlier than that.

However, that doesn't mean teachers couldn't be more prepared coming out of ed schools. I was surprised and disturbed by Jenny's observation that many ed school faculty think teaching is not a planned activity. Of course, most teachers have so little time to plan that maybe the ed school folks aren't as out of touch with reality as they appear...
