School districts across the country are facing a critical shortage of special education teachers. These shortages have significant consequences, resulting in larger class sizes for special education students. The special education teacher shortage not only affects the student-to-teacher ratio but also leads to special education students missing out on the crucial services they need and are entitled to by law.
