[Source: Disability Scoop]
A residency program for aspiring special education teachers beginning this summer aims to address the shortage that local school officials say is happening not only in Walla Walla but across the country.
The yearlong program, which is offered through the Washington Education Association, Walla Walla Valley Education Association and Walla Walla Public Schools, will train future special education teachers by having them work in several educational settings in Walla Walla.
Special Education Director Barb Casey says the shortage of special education teachers isn’t a challenge that is unique to Walla Walla and that this program could help remedy the issue.
