This may be old news to some people, but DH and I just recently found out that the government will forgive up to $17,500 in student loans for Special Ed, Math, and Science teachers working in Title I schools. Wow! We got our hopes up for a second there, but unfortunately, our school isn't Title I (close, but not quite), so it doesn't apply to us, but I thought I'd pass along the info in case others can benefit:<br><br><a href="http://studentaid.ed.gov/PORTALSWebApp/students/english/cancelstaff.jsp" target="_blank">http://studentaid.ed.gov/PORTALSWebA...ancelstaff.jsp</a>

I'm considering getting a Master's in Special Ed. What constitutes a Title 1 school?

The short explanation: A school serving a population of students where at least 30-something percent of students qualify as being socioeconomically disadvanatged. Those students are usually indentified as those who are gettinfg reduced or free lunches.<br><br>
Long explanation: <a href="http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/nclb/title1/" target="_blank">http://www.dpi.state.nc.us/nclb/title1/</a>

Interesting... this is something to think about, that's for sure.

Yes, definitely. We talked about whether DH should transfer to a Title I school to take advantage of this, but we're currently at the same school and we're both very happy there. We don't want to jinx it! A good school that's close to home and where you feel comfortable can be a lucky find.
