Shortage of Special Education Teachers Includes Their Teachers - On Special Education - Education Week

Shortage of Special Education Teachers Includes Their Teachers - On Special Education - Education Week

School districts often find themselves short of special education teachers, even as they lay off other educators.

The Special Education Faculty Needs Assessment project found that part of the shortage is because of an ongoing dearth of special education faculty that may grow worse in the near future. Concern over the shortage of faculty in the special education field led to creation of SEFNA with grant money from the U.S. Department of Education's office of special education programs. The work builds on a 2001 report that also found a shortage of special education faculty.
