Loan Forgiveness for Special Education Teachers

leadership team

Teachers who teach math, science, or SPECIAL EDUCATION and who have taught for five years in a Title I school may be eligible for new loan forgiveness limits.

The Taxpayer-Teacher Protection Act (P.L. 108-409) authorizes up to $17,500 in loan forgiveness to eligible highly qualified math, science and special education teachers.

This increase of $12,500 above the pervious loan limits is meant to ease the shortage of teachers in key subject areas.
