Educational Attainment of Children with Disabilities

Did you know 13 percent of all public school students receive some form of special education between K-12? That accounts for 6.4 million total students in the United States alone. Adversely, as of 2012, there are only 442,800 special education teachers that have the proper specialized training to teach these kids. That means for every special education teacher, there are almost 15 students to attend to. As we learn more about these disabilities and how to identify them, the need for properly educated teachers grows.

As a teacher or parent, it’s important to be able to identify problems in students and help to work with them throughout their developmental years. Earning a special education degree, especially a Master of Science in Special Education can help you guide these students towards a success, productive life.
