Did you know that policymakers in Washington are thinking about cutting funds for IDEA’s Personnel Preparation Program, a leading source of financial assistance for future special education, local/state leaders, researchers, and related service personnel?
We’re appalled, too!
Join CEC/TED/HECSE to support IDEA’s Personnel Preparation program, which currently supports approximately 8,000 scholars across the nation a year, all of whom are preparing for a career in special education as teachers, local and state leaders, researchers, and related service personnel.
Special education suffers from a decades-long national shortage – there simply aren’t enough special educators. Tell Congress our federal policies have to invest in special education!
Here are three quick and easy ways to become involved.
- Sign this letter to Congress and the Obama Administration in support of IDEA's Personnel Preparation Program.
- Send a personal letter to your Congressional Delegation through CEC's Legislative Action Center
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us how your preparation program made you a great special educator.
