How Education Professionals Become Special Education Professionals


When it comes to preparing special education professionals for the unique circumstances they'll face in the classroom, the University of Kansas School of Education has distinguished itself as the gold standard.

As U.S. News & World Report's No. 1 Department of Special Education (among public universities), the KU School of Education has a long history of civil rights advocacy as well as classroom success and has been at the forefront of special education since before and after the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act was passed.

"The department has been engaged in a civil rights and social justice agenda on behalf of children with disabilities and their families," explains Elizabeth Kozleski, professor and chair of KU's Department of Special Education. "It's been here from the beginning, and it's producing research every year that helps further that agenda."
