Many factors influence the quality of education, but teachers are the most dominant factor. The problem in education development in Indonesia is that teachers' competencies have not reached the expected competency standards. This has an impact on the low quality of education in Indonesia as seen from the low achievements of Indonesian children at the global level. The low quality of teachers is strongly suspected to be due to the low quality of prospective students admitted to Teacher's Colleges. In addition, Teacher's Colleges do not meet the standards set to produce quality graduates. This study aims to (i) analyze the quality of prospective students admitted to Teacher's Colleges, and (ii) evaluate the fulfillment of national standards for teacher education by Teacher's Colleges. The method used in this study was mixed quantitative and qualitative. Data collection was conducted through Focus Group Discussions with the heads of Primary School Teacher Education and Professional Teacher Education study programs. Data collection from students was carried out by distributing questionnaires in the form of google forms that were filled in online. In addition, secondary data on the accreditation of Teacher's Colleges was also collected. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The results showed that most of the student teachers were not aspiring teachers, nor were they students who excelled in high school. Another finding of the study is that most Teacher's Colleges do not meet the national standards set for conducting teacher education.
