KU nets $1.25 million grant to train teachers on inclusion of students with disabilities in schools

 


Kansas University has secured a five-year, $1.25 million grant from the federal Office of Special Education Programs to help increase inclusion in schools, the university announced Tuesday.

The grant will provide funding for 42 teachers to gain an endorsement in special education or work toward a master’s degree in special education.

Jennifer Kurth, assistant professor, and Mary Morningstar, associate professor of special education at KU, are co-principal investigators of the grant. They said the program would help address the practice of segregating students with disabilities such as cognitive disability, multiple disabilities or autism from general education classrooms.
