  1. Thank you for the article. As a Principal in a non-public 853 school dealing with the hardest 5% of the special education population, we find it even harder to adequately fill our classrooms with staff. Due to the low reimbursement rate of the state, we cannot afford to match or even come close to public school salaries. In my small building where we house 9 classrooms, I’m am currently searching for three special education teachers as one teacher just recently found a better paying job.

  4. I don’t understand why they don’t allow special education teachers to get an extension if there such a shortage of speech therapists, I mean in my opinion in a school setting (not healthcare) there’s really not much of a difference (And I’m talking responsibilities they do exactly what we do except they have one or two kids).
