Special Education Staffing and Service Models in Christian Schools
Lane, Julie M.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v26 n3 p225-236 2017
Christian schools are not obligated to accept children with disabilities. However, the growing trend in Christian schools is to serve children with disabilities. Recent literature has begun to identify enrollment trends, areas of disability served, and professional development in Christian schools as it relates to disability. Literature exists regarding Catholic, Lutheran, and non-denominational special education service organizations. However, the current literature neither addresses qualifications of Christian special education staff nor where special education services are provided in Christian schools, regardless of denomination. This study sought to understand the qualifications of current special education teachers in Christian schools in the United States and the mode in which services are delivered to children with disabilities.
