Embodying Justice: Supporting Teacher Candidates with Disabilities
Antilla-Garza, Julie
AILACTE Journal, v12 n1 p73-91 Fall 2015
Teacher Education Departments at most liberal arts colleges serve as professional certification programs as much as departments with academic majors. We train our students to work in P-12 education in an era of inclusion and require them to support their students with disabilities in preparation for college and career. The federal government protects individuals with disabilities while they are students in school and while they are employees in the workplace. Are we doing our part to support our teacher candidates while they are in our programs? As professional certification gatekeepers, do we unnecessarily block students with disabilities from completing their internship? In this article the author discusses these questions and invites readers to support teacher candidates with disabilities as a way to embody justice in education.
