    increased from 25 to 44 this year with possibility that will double when her co-teacher quits at end of this year. Retiring teaching positions won't be refilled in Lake County. School Board calls that "attrition," Since any pay increase a teacher in Indiana gets is based on how well students score of Standardized Tests, teachers of special needs students won't be getting salariy increases.  If you agree to teach the most vulnerable students, you will be punished.  S-I-Law's story isn't unique. The number of teachers with additional training to qualify to teach special needs students are declining in numbers even faster than other experienced teachers leaving the profession in this state.  It breaks my heart.
