Education is considered one of the most popular choices among college majors. Special Education may be one area of the education field that does not have enough licensed qualified teachers to fill the vacancies. What are the effects of mentorship programs on special education teacher retention? The purpose of the study was to look at mentorship programs as a way to combat the low retention rate of special education teachers. There are many factors such as design of the mentorship program that determine success or failure. The amount of time given to the mentorship program can also determine success or failure.
