Due to the continuous growth of special education worldwide, highly qualified teachers are needed. The Special Education program at the University of Jordan places student teachers for their practicum in different educational settings. The purpose of this study was to report preliminary information about students' satisfaction and concerns about the practicum. A survey of two questions was distributed among 50 undergraduate students in the Spring 2010/2011 semester. Results revealed that students were not satisfied with their practicum experience. Students' concerns highlighted issues related to stakeholders' partnerships, connections between university courses and practicum requirements, supervision, mentors, and field sites. Discussion and recommendations are presented in the study. (Contains 3 tables.)
