Teacher Preparation Map

Interactive Map of Special Education Teacher Preparation Programs

A single year with an ineffective teacher can cost a student up to one and a half years’ worth of achievement. On the other hand, five consecutive years with an effective teacher could nearly close the achievement gap” (Remer, 2017). 

Teacher preparation programs for special education are vital to addressing the critical shortage of special education educators in the field.

The Interactive Map of National Educator Preparation Programs in Special Education uses RISE (Recruitment through Interactive and Strategic Enrollment) technology to make it possible for you to quickly locate information on educator preparation programs focused on special education.

The Interactive map provides relevant information to support a range of users from policymakers, and institutions of higher education, to persons planning a career instructing students with disabilities.

CIDDL invites you to explore this tool on the Toni Jennings Exceptional Education Institute's website.
