Assistant Secretary Alexa Posny will discuss the need for coordinated teacher recruitment, preparation and evaluation across general and special education programs as part of remarks to the Higher Education Consortium for Special Education (HECSE) Friday at the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center. She will also speak broadly about what reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act could mean for students with disabilities, as well as special education teachers, paraprofessionals and support staff.
Posny will be joined in the presentation by Michael Yudin, deputy assistant secretary for policy and strategic initiatives for the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education.
About 70 representatives from HECSE-member institutions are expected, including universities with national reputations for preparing special education teachers, related service providers, administrators, teacher educators, and researchers.
