CALL TO ACTION!!!! ENCOURAGE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO INVEST IN SPECIAL EDUCATION!!

Share How Your Preparation Program Helped You Become a Great Special Educator
A TED/HECSE/CEC Collaboration

 

Policymakers in Washington are thinking about cutting funds for IDEA’s Personnel Preparation Program, a leading source of financial assistance for future special educators, early interventionists, local/state leaders, researchers, and related service personnel.

Join CEC/TED/HECSE to support IDEA’s Personnel Preparation Program, which currently supports approximately 8,000 scholars per year across the nation who are preparing for a career in special education or early intervention.

Special education suffers from a decades-long national shortage-there simply aren’t enough special educators!!!

Here are three quick and easy  ways to become involved: 

  1. There’s power in numbers! Sign this letter to Congress and the Obama Administration in support of IDEA’s Personnel Preparation Program.
  2. Email Congress NOW! Use CEC’s Legislative Action Center to send a personal letter.
  3. Tell us your story! Email pubpol@cec.sped.org and tell us how your preparation program made you a great special educator.

Locate your legislators through the following sites and ask them to RESTORE FUNDING for Special Education:
