The nation s special education students are in dire need of qualified teachers.

teachers in low-income schools by increasing the amount of loan forgiveness
available for special education teachers who teach for five consecutive years in designated schools.
You are eligible if:
You received federal Stafford or Perkins loans.
You taught special education in a low-income school for five consecutive years.
You borrowed money after 1998.
This information is important for special education teachers, who can benefit now; any student interested in becoming a special education teacher; and high school and college guidance counselors, who share this information with interested students.
