NEA seeks to improve professional development

To provide quality instruction for the highly diverse population of students with disabilities, educators -– including general education teachers, special educators, paraeducators, and administrators -– need continuing professional development that is intensive and tailored to their specific needs.

NEA seeks to improve the quality of instruction through better professional development by clearly earmarking IDEA "Part D" funds for enhanced professional development and training. Both the House and Senate versions of the bill represent real improvement in this regard, though NEA believes the Senate version is the better of the two.
