In the year 2012, 13.4% of students in Minnesota k-12 schools were in special education. This equates to over 111,000 students who are in the special education program in Minnesota. These students need instructors who are specifically trained to work with them and help them be successful through additional support.
This growing field is a great place for a person looking for challenging yet rewarding work. There is no such thing as a normal day as new experiences come with each sunrise. While a license in special education is required to enter this field, a Bachelor degree in Elementary Education Foundations from CEHD can be a great entry point into the profession.
