Personnel Preparation Projects for Special Education: It Takes More than Money
Ingalls, Lawrence; Hammond, Helen
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v5 n10 p1-6 Oct 2008
The issues regarding teacher shortages and retention have been a concern for many years within the special education field. School districts have struggled at not only maintaining quality teachers to fill positions for special education programs, but also to retain these quality teachers in their districts. As an additional challenge, many communities have members that are place bound. These individuals do not wish to leave their families to move to another location to receive university training. Specific strategies used in training models from a variety of projects will be discussed.
