  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.
