The major concern of this study is to present some conceptions about the features of the preservice and inservice teaching education programs in Egypt from the perspective of teaching future curricula. A picture of future curricula in the light of studying changes that might occur in the wider system affecting curriculum has been drawn. This system includes the system of education in Egypt, national, the regional and the human cultures. The concept of "functional encyclopedism" as a philosophical base for selecting and organizing the content of curriculum has been introduced. The paper describes the detailed conceptions on structure, content, methods of teaching, educational media, educational activities and evaluation means of both pre- and in -service teacher education. Although the present study is focused on Egypt, the ideas may be applicable to other countries.
