    This is really something you need to find out for yourself.
    There will always be jobs in sped.

    In deciding,think about what draws you to this area...have you worked with/had experience with special Ed students? If not, you might consider volunteering or observing in a variety of school/school-like settings to see what it's like...

    No one ever knows what will happen tomorrow, but there will always be students who need support. And truthfully, if there's a need, charter schools will compete for the $$$ to meet those needs if public schools are unable.

    Well she was implying that a loose translation of IDEA could get rid of Special Education because frankly Devos and Trump don't know a thing about anything. I severely don't think that's going to happen though.
