Special Education Programs

The Special Education Division of the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) provides leadership to ensure a high-quality education for Minnesota's children and youth with disabilities. Its specialists help students, parents, educators and administrators through guidance, training and sharing best practices in areas including educational programs in care and treatment facilities, secondary transition and statewide assessment for students in special education. For information about other special education programs in Minnesota, see the related MDE resource links.

Care and Treatment Education Programs

The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) provides leadership and technical assistance to help administrators and educators at care and treatment facilities provide a high-quality education for their general and special education students. These facilities include health care, foster care, shelter, correctional and other types of programs that may serve both resident and day students. Through both its assistance and its application and approval process, which are outlined on this page, MDE helps current and prospective care and treatment providers develop and maintain a variety of quality education models for their students, helping to ensure all children get necessary support for healthy development and lifelong learning.

Reintegration Framework and Systems Planning Toolkit
The Reintegration Framework and Systems Planning Toolkit from the University of Minnesota outlines a continuous quality improvement process developed from research and data based practices for transition planning for children and youth. The tool was initially developed for children and youth in residential care and treatment education programs to provide a structured process for reintegration to and from these programs. It now includes other nontraditional education programs.

The Framework is a program planning tool that consists of performance indicators in five critical areas: interagency collaboration, team planning, education, supporting life skills and continuity during and post transition.

I'm starting this fall in the Counseling and Student Personell Psychology program this fall in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Supposedly it's ranked 4th in the nation by the US News & World Report. Does anyone have any personal experience with this program?

The controversy over OBE

FYI, here's a few articles I found relating to the Outcome-Based Education controversy.
What’s Wrong with 'Outcome Based Education'
Throughout America, the federal government is imposing a new educational program called 'Outcome Based Education' (OBE). Under OBE, students no longer earn grades based on their mastery of a curriculum. Instead, students are evaluated on whether they have attained various 'outcomes,' many of them vaguely-defined.
In this Issue Paper, education analysts Dwight Williams and Edward Lederman break through OBE’s layers of jargon to explain what OBE really means

I suggest you beging your schooling at a community college, and perhaps take a course in personal development / career planning.
These classes help people identify their interests, abilities and skills. They also talk about different career pathways.
At a community college, you can opt for vocational training or completing academic coursework that can apply towards a degree. Students typically spend two years at a community college (though there is wide variation on this) and then transfer to a university to earn a bachelor's degree.
