Help! I teach special ed in CA. I have an eduction specialist credential. I need help understanding what I can teach. I am being told that I cannot teach an special day English class for students who will not be receiving a high school diploma because I have not passed the CSET. Does anyone know if this is true? I have contacted the CCTC and awaiting a reply. It seems though that if I am a special education teacher I should be able to teach a purely special education class. Any thoughts?
