A Compilation of Research on States' Licensure Models for Special Education Teachers and Special Education Requirements for Licensing General Education Teachers
Geiger, William L.
The purpose of this paper is to provide a summary of research on states' structures and models for the licensure of traditionally prepared special education teachers and research on states' special education requirements for the licensure of general education teachers. This document is intended to assist future scholars interested in these topics by providing a thorough, expanded review of pertinent literature that will enable them to extend the path of previous research on the topic. Educational databases were searched and reports/articles on the topics were reviewed and summarized. References identified in research articles were tracked and reviewed in order to ensure a comprehensive summary of research on the topics. Studies were summarized, classified into topical areas, and organized into three chronological clusters-reports prior to 1980, documents from the 1980s, and reports published post 1989. Approximately 50 documents representing research spanning more than a half-century (1952-2005) are summarized in this compilation.
