The Increasing Need for Special Education Teachers: Evidence from the Annual Reports to Congress.
National Clearinghouse for Professions in Special Education, Reston, VA.; National Association of State Directors of Special Education, Alexandria, VA.
This brief summary is based on analysis of the Annual Reports to Congress on implementation of the Education for the Handicapped Act (now Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) by the Office of Special Education Programs. Narratives and graphs demonstrate the continuing increase in numbers of special education students, the leveling out of numbers of special education teachers employed and numbers of students per teacher, and the increasing numbers of special education teachers needed (based on number of positions school systems are unable to fill with qualified personnel).
