Significant Information: Teachers - Special Education




  • All States require teachers to be licensed; licensing requires the completion of a teacher training program and at least a bachelorís degree, though many States require a masterís degree.
  • Excellent job prospects are expected due to rising enrollments of special education students and reported shortages of qualified teachers.
  • Many States offer alternative licensure programs to attract people to these jobs who do not have the qualifications to become teachers under normal procedures.
